Parks in Muscat & Other Green Spaces:
Let us tell you that you may be wrong if you think about Oman as dry and barren as other Middle Eastern countries. It is an Arab country with several green areas, parks, deep blue sea waters, and other such views and sites that are going to make you feel closer to nature and feel cool and at peace.
Al Ansab Wetland:
It is situated at an 11kms short drive from the center of Muscat. It’s a beautiful and pleasant area to visit with 300 different species of birds, butterflies, flowers, and fishes. The interesting thing about this wetland is that it is built by Oman’s wastewater services company which is doing promising work in helping Oman implement guidelines to save the environment from pollution.
Qurum Natural Park:
This park is usually known as the “lungs of Muscat” and is situated by the side of the main coastal road leading down to Qurum Beach. It is a public garden and is very popular among the residents and tourists.
This park has an artificial waterfall, a lake for boating, beautiful fountains, and the famous Sultan Qaboos Rose Garden. For people who love walking in the evenings or at night, this park is ideal for them after sunset as the lights light up and give it a charming glow.
One of the first parks to have been built in Oman is situated at 30kms from Muscat airport. Naseem Garden is mainly located on the highway leading to Al-Bāţinah. It is a beautiful family park with lush green spaces and exquisite waterfalls.
The most amazing feature of this garden is it has mazes and a beautiful playground for the kids. The aquarium, another attraction, brings tourists there.
