BBQ at Abu Dhabi Airport Park

The park is right next to Abu Dhabi’s busy international airport.  Fortunately, it is remarkably quiet, well away from flight paths.  We like to go early because it fills up quickly as the day progresses at weekends (Fri & Sat) with family groups.  For some bizarre reason the park is open at 3 p.m. on weekdays and at 9 a.m. at weekends.  Its a great way to spend a few pleasant hours under the shade trees and for kids to enjoy the play areas.

Fun Time at Airport Park, Abu Dhabi

We were there for 3 hours before heading off to Yas Marina circuit for final practice and qualifying for the F1 GP.

The park is also good for birding both inside the park and immediately outside the fence.  Not a lot on show this trip but what was there was interesting and colourful.

I'm a birder in Western Europe (UK, France & Spain) and Central Asia, with occasional visits elsewhere. Birding is my principal hobby and I dedicate as much time around work and other commitments.
