Mushrif Park On Saturdays

IMG_3526

This weekend I wanted to do something different so I decided to head into the city with my friends. I have wanted to go to Mushrif Park since I moved here. With the temperature having dropped steadily in Abu Dhabi over the last few weeks a lot more outdoor activities have kicked off.

The Ripe Food Market on Saturdays started a few weeks ago and I finally made it this weekend and I was not disappointed. Sometimes it’s hard to get really good fruit and veggies in the Middle East but the Ripe stalls had the best veggies and fruit I have seen in ages.

There was a really nice buzz around the park today because there was an science fair on for children and also the Metronome Open Mic.

There was a really nice crowd of people chilling on the lawn for the Metronome gig. I loved that blankets were provided for everyone to sit down, it was such a nice touch. We indulged from the surrounding food stalls and sat and listened to some local artists for awhile.

Mushrif Park has definitely become one of my favourite ways to pass a Saturday afternoon. I love the relaxed, almost European feel it has. I will also be checking out more of Metronome’s events again. It’s a really nice way to end a chilled weekend before heading back to teaching in the morning. The Park itself is huge and I only saw a fraction of it today. I want to go back on a quieter day to explore more and check out the Botanical Gardens that are meant to be incredible.

Hoping that everyone had a fabulous weekend,

Xo Laura.
