What Makes It Special: Rock-Scaling Bridge

Let’s be honest. With a male-to-female ratio of 10:3.16 some days you can do with a little less testosterone. Women can breathe a sigh of relief in this park. No men allowed. Boys aren’t either, unless they’re under the age of six. Mothers with 7 year-old males don’t despair Busamra Park can be found two streets away.

Khulaifat Park has a male guard stationed at the entry but he does not have a view into the park. The park is closed in the morning to allow the gardeners work their blooming magic. These hours are strictly maintained, usually.

Women host parties, religious services, birthday parties and picnics. The playground caters to toddlers and older girls. If you’re easily amused and haven’t climbed rocks in a few months, the rocks piled around the bridge are wicked fun to climb. And renditions of Billy Goat Gruff can be reenacted.

The entrance to the park is hidden away from the main road; drive round the back and park along the street.
