Al Riyam Park
Located at the eastern end of the Matrah Corniche, al Riyam Park takes advantage of stunning views and the unique natural landscape. The green park is located on a small peninsula and includes two steep hills, one of which contains an ancient Portuguese watchtower. The second hill, further inland, is crowned with a white modern watchtower built to look like an incense burner. The tower draws tourists for the panoramic views extending from Matrah to Old Muscat.

Another bewitching sight is the Sultan Qaboos Rose Garden. The variety of roses in this garden is really a feast to eyes and that is why Qurum Natural Park is also known as "Rose Garden".
