Maafi Parklife

Al Ain is famous, at least within the UAE, for its wonderful parks and gardens. Now that its cooling off, we can finally get out and enjoy them. Well, after 4pm we can...

Why 4pm? What's going on with the rest of the day? I asked once and was told it was because everyone is working and nobody wants to go to the park in the morning and early afternoon.

What about mothers with pre school children who would appreciate a stroll through a natural environment rather than a fake one (mall)? What about the elderly, the infirm and all those who are not at 'duty'? ( hate that term for work, I've only heard it here and it makes me fume when I hear it).

Good that you brought this up. They don't have to open all the parks early, perhaps just one that is in a central locations. Last year the park in the Green Mubazzarah (which is way out of town) was open all day, don't know if it still is. Does anyone know who can be contacted in the municipality to enquire about opening times etc?

Problem with the GMB it its a bit or a trek out of town. Have you been to the Women and Children park in Muwaiji yet, its next to the Diwan roundabout on the Abu Dhabi road. Its lovely and they've almost finished the swimming pool in there.
