Aspire and MIA park

Fresh air and natural surroundings is the best combination. You can head to Aspire Park or the Museum of Islamic Art Park. These parks are known to be popular destinations among families. Families can enjoy picnics, the kids can play in the playground etc. At Aspire Park, children can also enjoy cycling and rollerblading (children under 10 years old).
