You are welcome to walk, bike and roller blade along the paths. There are a few bike rental companies along the way. There is one near the Hilton Hotel, and at the 26th Street and 30th Street junction.

You can rent adult bikes, kid bikes and even family bikes! They are available for hire on an hourly basis and must be returned to the location you rented it from. Remember you need to leave a piece of ID and a deposit in order to rent the bikes but they are quite reasonably priced.

There are several parks across the road with kids playgrounds including one with a pirate ship to climb on. You can access these by pedestrian crossings and pedestrian tunnels. There is also a skate boarding park along the way. Check out these fun things to do in Abu Dhabi with kids and teenagers.
