Al Riyam Park

Park in Muscat

Beyond Mutrah Fort, the Corniche leads to the leafy Al Riyam Park, with fine views of the harbour from the giant ornamental incense burner. There is a small funfair popular with locals at weekends. The park is on the path of a popular hike (C38) that used to link Mutrah with Muscat proper. Park opening times are a bit hit-and-miss.
