Weekend at Middle Corniche Park, Jeddah


This is my kind of weekend. Going to the park and spending time with my family.

I  went to Corniche with my family yesterday to relax. I found out that the best time to go there is from 3:00-6:00 PM. Beyond that, you’ll have a crowded park with zero parking space.  I thought it would be pretty hot at that time, but it wasn’t. The wind was was not that strong either. Almost perfect. =) Almost, because my kind of weather is the winter in Jeddah. Just cool breeze touching my face. =)

The place near the fountain is more crowded, so it’s better to go to this middle part. The one near the globe-like landmark. Just in front of the new hotel/building (the one that looks like a palace) that’s under construction.

(Late post. This was last week. This post has long been in my draft, along with many other drafts. No time to edit. =) )  
  
 There’s also a playground and some stores near that area.

  1. Marhabah! 🙂 You have a lovely family and I’m happy to read that you get to go out with your boys.
    I used to work in Doha. I’m wondering if you get to go out without wearing the head cover in Jeddah…

    1. It’s a must to wear the abaya (black robe). For the head cover, most women wear them here in Jeddah. I wear them in places where many men are around.

    1. True. When I was a child, we used to go to PICC?! Or CCP?! Can’t remember. The whole clan would be there to just have a picnic. 🙂 simple life. 🙂

  2. This is one thing that is lacking in the Philippines. When I lived in the US, I enjoyed going to parks. I spent time there reading, jogging or just hanging out with friends. I really do hope that this country pays enough attention in building and developing parks. We need trees and fresh air for the kids. Masyado ng madaming malls! :p

  3. What a beautiful afternoon spent with the people who matters most! I wish we could do that here. If we lived in an executive village, maybe. But the chances of Metro Manila having decent public parks is slim to none.

  4. Your kids are so adorable! I’m sure they had a blast. It’s been a while since we’ve spent time in a park. When I was young and there were still no malls in Davao, all we did was play in the park!

  5. Going to parks is one of our most favorite things to do with our kids too. There’s one over here that we frequent a lot because there are malls nearby, but at the same time there’s lots of open spaces to play.
