MIA Park offers ample green space to unwind before or after the matches, watch the fireworks and other spectacular displays on the Corniche or simply enjoy an oasis of serenity. Amidst the bustle of the city, MIA Park is the destination to enjoy relaxing afternoon picnics and serene sunset strolls, complemented by a selection of local flavours available at kiosks and food trucks.
