Sami Abdulrahman is quite a nice place for a walk or a jog. Note that depending on the season, it can be crowded already at 6:00 in the morning. Majority of people are walking. Thus, if you intend to jog, it is at times necessary to zigzag. This might somewhat alter your pace. Summertime, it is advised not to run after 7:00/7:30 because of the heat. On the other hand no problem of security, including for women, which is definitely a big plus. The circuit is around 1400m. Therefore, if one adds the high density of walkers, the repetitive aspect of such a short track, and limited hours in relation to the climate, this is a "better than nothing" option, but certainly not a great way to run, especially if your aim is a 10km or above session.

Nice large park - safe to walk around. Fabulous rose displays in the Spring. Pretty deserted in the daytime but comes alive with people in the evenings. Don't bother to queue for the motor boat trip on the small lake - it only makes one circuit per ride!

This park could have been SO nice. There is definitely that air of unloved concrete kitch that gives the park a bit of an eerie feel that prevents it from being totally nice. However there are tons of roses and for once I have o admit something here exceeded my expectations.

I regularly go there in the morning for a jog. Refreshing green retreat away from the concrete and polluted streets of Erbil

It's like you're not in Iraq!
Very nice and organized and clean! YES CLEAN!

The weather is nice
people are civilized
you are free outside and there's no fear for your life from anything that might happen.
I actually feel sorry why isn't the south and center anything like the north of Iraq ..
But well, we can always go to Erbil to chill.
