We visited over lunchtime. It was pretty quiet. We hired a 2 seater pedal cart for 30 dirham for 1 hour. A bit small for me at 6ft 1 inch.
The oasis is not huge so on reflection we could have walked around just as easily. Very clean and neat. Well explained at the West entrance.
Nice coffee shop/cafe in the middle... somewhere.
Worth a visit but 90 minutes would do it.
Next time I will pack some binoculars, glimpsed some very interesting bird life.

We visited Al Ain Oasis as part of a tourism project for Grad school and it was a great trip. I could not believe a crack in the earth could produce all this beauty.

We were able to walk around and see the historical irrigation system and watched as the tree trimmers maintained the trees. The whole city has grown around the Oasis and the grounds give an isolated view of the natural beauty of the area and show its past.

It is something that should not be missed.

Strolling through the Oasis, in the Centre of Al Ain, was a very pleasant way to spend a couple of hours. It's free to enter and you are at liberty to wander round the large complex. However, there's very little Visitor Information which is a shame, other than in the Eco Centre. There are bikes which you can hire to explore and also a 'train' which would be ideal for those with mobility issues. It's well maintained paths make it easily accesible for pushchair and wheelchair users. Good toilet facilities.

Rent a bike, a tricycle or a quadricycle and roam around with the family among palm trees. We took many photos and the oasis ends at the palace museum . So make sure to schedule both activities sequentially

Perfect to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city. Come for a stroll, go to the back yard of the museum where you have this beautiful palm forest to stroll around and to unwind! Recommended for calming minds🙌

The Oasis is the historic core of Al Ain, and one of the oldest continuously inhabited places on the Arabian Peninsula.

It is also the flagship attraction, and to some extent the epitomy of Al Ain. It is indeed fascinating, simply by being a lush, green spot in the middle of a desert. If you visit Al Ain, a trip here is a no-brainer.

That being said, a quick visit is enough. Walking among the date palm trees is obviously nice and pleasant, it is a pretty place, and it is what defines Al Ain, but there isn't much to do there. Oh, make sure to have one of the hand-made ice cream mixes at the cafe there. Those ones are actually nice!

The Al Ain Palace Museum and the Al Ain National Museum are also located within the oasis. The National Museum was closed when we were there, though.

The Palace Museum, formerly the palace of Sheikh Zayed (the founding father of the United Arab Emirates) can be done in less than an hour. It is a cute little palace, definitely nothing extravagant. The again, it was built at a time when the place we call UAE today were some dirt poor desert kingdoms. That makes it an important part of the history of the Emirates, and a great example of how far the country has come in just a cople of decades.

Travelled to the Al Ain Oasis with some friends. It is a UESCO site... so initially I was excited but... after being in the Oasis for well over an hour I came to realize it is more of a maze, all areas are identical, litter is everywhere which is sad, little signage about the animal and flora in the area... so you do not know what you are look at or looking for. Really its just a walled green space, with nothing but palm trees to see. Little sitting space... barbed wire... add to the cons. The good news is... its free and rarely closed... It just was not worth the visit... sorry.
