There is a small park with few stands/shops with souvenirs. This place is close to the sea. You can spent there no more than 10 minutes. There is really nothing special.

An average place to visit, it has different cultural corners and shops selling old Kuwaiti house holds, clothes and other souvenirs, you can also try some Kuwaiti common snacks like Bagella and Nekhi, kids can find a lot of old Kuwaiti swings
