Bahrain has a growing number of public urban parks where you can enjoy the outdoors. There are places for many activities, for all ages. They are perfect for a family fun day out with a picnic, or simply a healthy stroll. Most parks have plenty of shaded areas, and some are packed with greenery. They are often cooler than the vicinity, and therefore very pleasant. They are beautiful places to catch up on reading or just chat with friends. Many have children playgrounds and even (free) playing fields. The facilities available in each park vary, and this application helps you plan the visits according to your interests.
"An urban park/metropolitan park, also known as a municipal park (North America) or a public park, public open space, or municipal gardens (United Kingdom), is a park in cities and other incorporated places to offer recreation and green space to residents of, and visitors to, the municipality."Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urban_park
