Sami Abdulrahman Park reviews
It is one of the most beautiful parks in Erbil, too big, green, somehow it is clean, recommended to visit

Great place to go in the mornings for exercise. In the evenings, it will get quite crowded with many families coming to visit bringing food and spending time with the family. Very nice park overall.

Amazing for walking, jogging, and running. The weather is totally different inside the park because of the density grasses and trees. A perfect place for photography and good scenes. Also it is good for families and kids. Some times the park gets very crowded, however it doesn't feel bad as for the extreme area spaces designed inside.
The perfect place for picnics! The atmosphere is great and you can breathe some fresh air inside. A good place for a get-together day. It is spacious which offers plenty of calm places to spend your time. Variety of activities can be done there. 🌟🌟🌟🌟 stars because: 1- The restaurants are not well-distributed in the park. So you have to walk a lot to reach any rest if you get hungry. Bring your food so you’ll be on the safe side :) 2- It is dark at night when walking.
