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!

The Beirut Hippodrome is a landmark. Every Sunday, horse races take place. As a location, it's a very beautiful place - It's huge and has a lot of trees (which is becoming rare in Beirut).

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.

Horse racing took place already since around 13h30, we arrived a bit later but in time for the second or third race.

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)

It's one of rare green area in Beirut. Nice location ... you will meet lots of taxi drivers who spend their money on gambling :-)

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