Do go there if you have time. It's just a walk between the palm trees. You can really see how the water management been done and distribution of water to different owner palm trees. You can step on to the fields and fetch some oranges too. It's a big farm and they provide bicycle too on rent. Food court also available. A good walk if you like walking.
An enchanting place ,as never seen before.The palm trees farms extend on both sides of the well paved pathways ,for 10 kilometers. The rich greenery and the tall trees provide shadowy retreat unmatched in beauty and tranquility. A must see place in Al Ain.
