13 Parks in Amman } ١٣ حديقة بعمان

By: Salma Abdel Jawad on Motherhood & More blog 
 

Don’t you like going to parks? Personally, I LOVE going to parks since I was a little girl. And now is the perfect timing to have a tour around Amman Parks.

So, I decided to start visiting the most famous parks in Amman which I will be sharing with you in my post:

Enjoy visiting Parks in Amman! And If there is any interesting park that is worth mentioning, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment and I will be more than happy to add it to this list!

 

1. Zahran Park

This park is one of my favorite parks in Amman. It is located in Zahran street between 4th circle and 3rd circle. It is a beautiful and a quite park where you can have a walk or sit on its benches. I used to go there when I was pregnant and stroll with my new born where he can sleep and I would sit there and relax or read something. It doesn’t have any playing areas, no slides nor swings. But, there is a space if you’d like to bring bikes or scooters for your children. Small but nice and calm park. It’s worth trying! It is open until 8:30 PM. No fees.

Graffiti Art in #Amman } فن الجرافيتي بعمان

In the past, BeAmman has struggled to convince authorities to allow graffiti artists to paint in certain areas, in a respectful way that does not vandalize public or private property.

Slowly, the municipality is accepting graffiti art and understanding the value of bringing color and certain messages to a city.
Unfortunately in some cases many beautiful murals have been painted over because they do not adhere to 'Amman colors'.

We have been told on one occasion, that we are promoting devil worshippers and allowing for un-islamic messages to be displayed around our city.
A shocking accusation. The murals we have commissioned were ones with positive messages and colors, something Amman desperately needs
(see below Ahel Al Balad Murals as an example).

What are your thoughts on Graffiti in Amman?

2 of our favorite graffiti artists in Amman have been busy working on new murals around the city.

The recent ones have been spotted in Ras El Ain supported by the King Abdullah Fund for Development (KAFD)

Thank you Sardine a.k.a. Mike V. Derderian & Wize One a.k.a Wesam Shadid for making Amman & Jordan a more colorful place.

We look forward to seeing more beautiful work around Jordan & seeing generations of artists learning from you to keep this art alive.
