Ittihad Park is a palm tree-lined promenade-style affair surrounded by a 3.2km jogging track. Squarely aimed at running enthusiasts, this place is perfect for an early morning or evening jaunt. Landscaped rockeries and the odd water feature improve the scenery along the straight running route, and there’s even a variety of gym equipment on the way, should you feel up to a quick burst of squat thrusts or push-ups. Sadly, there’s a bit of a lack of greenery, except for the aforementioned trees and the odd tiny strip of grass here and there.
Facilities: Gym equipment and two kids’ playgrounds.
Shops or kiosks: None.
Nature: Lots of different species of bird, including colourful hoopoes. Pets allowed? No.
