Parks in Shiab al Ashkar

Finding fun, relatively quiet and safe parks in Al Ain can prove to be a little bit of a challenge.

However, in the Shiab al Ashkar District, you will find a great many beautiful, spacious and well-equipped parks.

They range from rather large ones, with Helter Skelters and trampolines, to smaller ones with a scattering of swings and slides. However, be careful when you use them, as in the middle of the day the rubber ground and metal becomes extremely hot to touch and can obviously be hazardous for young children.

Google Maps has this area listed as ‘Zayed Mosque Town’ and is outlined in red below. I have placed the smaller red dots on the main 2 smaller parks, and the largest on (you guessed it) the largest park!

Here are some photographs of what you can expect to find at these three main parks, open all day, and for anyone.
