Only time we get to enjoy 1 of Beirut's biggest green space is during private events which are held occasionally, Garden show is our favorite one. The long pine trees, the big open space, the soft breeze, mingling and having fun with other families!

This was awesome to see, even if you are driving by in a cab. Completely exposed, no interpretation, I suggest visiting and then going home to research.

Usually am not so fun with horses or anything related to including Hippodrome . . but this one (Beirut Hippodrome) is so different . . I really like it it is more like a park that you can spend the time there wondering and enjoying looking to even you you was like (zero interest in horses)

Nice place if you want to see some races but nothing fancy about it. Just like any other Hippodrome.
