Discover an oasis of calm in the heart of Sohar, at this natural space in the middle of the city. Sallan Park, otherwise known as the "Silver Jubilee" Park, is a peaceful green park and the perfect place for relaxation. Enjoy a walk or picnic in this beautifully landscaped green area that's popular with local families and offers a number of fun activities to enjoy. The park also hosts many local celebrations. Sallan Park, which covers 2.2 km in length, is a fantastic way to spend a day in Sohar and offers access to the local beach.
A leafy haven
Located in the southern part of the Salan Wadi (Slan Valley), the park is in one of the most beautiful areas in the region. There are wonderful public gardens to wander through, known as the Wilayat of Sohar. The thoughtful landscaping ensures a variety of vibrant colors and interesting features. Sallan Park is considered one of the top parks in the valley. Large areas of green space are punctuated by sparkling, palm-lined lakes, which are crossed by bridges to help you navigate the park and get between gardens. There are many benches spread around the park, allowing a peaceful spot to sit down and take a rest, while umbrellas and trees provide shade for those wishing to bring a picnic or to read a book in comfort.
A hub of activity
The park offers a great deal to do within its confines. There are often sports teams playing on the green grass, such as local cricket teams. Watch a game or, if you're lucky, maybe you'll be able to join in! For children, there's a well-equipped playground with all the usual features, and a fairground often visits, with many different rides and attractions to enjoy. You can get around the park in many exciting ways. Hire a paddle boat for a peaceful boating experience on the lake and enjoy the sunshine as it hits the water. Hire a camel or horse to get a fun riding experience and see the park in a way you haven't seen it before. You can even take the animals down to the beach for further riding opportunities. Rent a bike to skirt the edges of the lakes and cycle down to the sea with speed and ease. Relax on the beach and head out for a swim in the blue waters that are just a stone's throw from the park before heading back home or to your hotel.
