Al Towayya Park by night

Al Ain's weather is getting cooler each day making it conducive for outdoor activities. I am off tonight and my mind is just too tired to think of my responsibilities. I really need to unwind and relax even for a couple of hours. Even my boys are asking me if we can go out. At 06:30 PM, off we went to Al Towayya Park.

Al Towayya Park is located in 2nd Street of Al Ragayeb Community at Al Towayya District. It has numerous benches located around the park, unlimited play areas for kids, lots of grass and trees, and several picnic spots perfect for outdoor gathering for families and friends. The park is also ideal for an array of activities having a basketball court, tennis court and volleyball court. 

The park is open to the general public free of charge. There are numerous parking spaces around the vicinity available for all. 

Here are some of my photos taken during the time of our visit. I was about to open my tripod when a security guard approached and reminded me of the rules about photography while visiting the park. I assured him that I'm a law abiding resident. ('',)

Goodnight everyone!

  1. I'm amused the park is not crowded. Had the park been here in Pinas, I'm sure it's going to be a crowded one even at night.

    I got curious about their laws governing photography in public places. Mahigpit ba sila talaga?

  4. Thank you everyone.

    @Nortehanon,

    I am into photography for nearly 2 years now and I've been to places here in Al Ain and in the other emirates but honestly, I haven't read any UAE Photography law. What I am aware of it that every emirate has it's jurisdictions when it comes to photography. Here in Al Ain, I've learned that most of the locals preferred not to be photographed especially when they are in abaya. Even the kids at the park should not be photographed. Parents will complain and the park's security guard will remind you, if you will not follow, you will end up sitting in the four corners of jail. I find it liberal in Dubai than in Abu Dhabi (including Al Ain) and the other emirates of UAE.
