View animals from A.c rooms so anytime is a good time to visit! I just wish there were more wild animals... but otherwise the kids had a lovely time!!!! At the children's farm they were allowed to feed domestic animals which they found amusing.

Great place the park is divided to:
1. Breeding Centre for Endangered Arabian Wildlife: a small outside walk with some birds and animals very pleasant for younger kids
2. Arabian wildlife center: some sort of a mini zoo with a decent collection of animals and a resturant overlooking the wild open area where you can see a lot of animals and birds ( ostriches, oryx, birds)
3. Islamic botanic gardens: it shows the vegetating and fruits that are mentioned in the Quran and their benefits. The concept is very good and the structure of the building is just amazing.
4. Natural history museum: tells the history of time and sharjah including some skeletons made for recycled items from the park staff.

The park cost 15dirhams (less than 10 USD) for adults and free for children less than 12 years, It can be a 3-4 hours outing, the place is very well maintained and have cleans facilities. The Islamic botanic gardens have a very clean changing area for nappies.

Highly recommended for families with younger children who are looking to get away from the shopping malls!!!!
