SPECIAL SERIES: 19 Best Parks in Doha

22 comments

To help you plan ahead for your outdoor events or weekend activities as an alternative to shopping malls, here are some of the outdoor parks that you could consider. If you feel like jogging, strolling around or having a family picnic, there’s a lot of public parks available around Doha and its peripherals alone. And that’s perfect for that cozy family bonding for kids to explore vast open spaces.

They are located in different parts of the city and thankfully, this is one of the government’s main priority projects aside from the regular roads, drainages and other infrastructure projects. Qatar’s commitment to a healthy environment and encouraging sports and exercise amongst its people are some of the obvious reasons for the proliferation of these beautiful parks.

19 BEST PUBLIC PARKS IN DOHA (in no particular order):

1. AL BIDDA PARK (covering Al Bidda, Al Rumaila East and Wadi Al Sail)
2. ASPIRE PARK (Hyatt Plaza)
3. HOTEL PARK (Sheraton Hotel)
4. MIA PARK
5. SOUQ WAQIF PARK
6. OXYGEN PARK (Qatar Foundation)
7. MUGLINA UNIT PARK (opposite Qatar National Museum)
8. AIRPORT PARK (Old Airport Complex)

15. FAREEJ AL ALI FAMILY PARK
16. PARK 65 (Dafna)
17. ONAIZA PARK
18. AL RAYYAN PARK

There are even smaller parks around many communities and all of these have been established by the Public Gardens Department of the Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME) featuring ample green areas, bike tracks, passageways, kids play area and safe rubber surface. These parks are equipped with spacious playgrounds and offer WiFi connectivity too. Similar other parks are also available in other Municipalities of Qatar.

  1. Our kids enjoy biking around, playing tag and on the playground they enjoy most the sandbox! Maybe because they are confined in the concrete walls of the house the whole weekdays. 🙂 Making the most out of this good weather is nice ‘coz it will not take long. Before we know it, it will be summer again.

  4. Parks are also good for photoshoot 😍 Recently I had a maternity shoot at MIA park. Going to parks is another way to spend quality time with our family and loved ones. Bonding moments like playing board games and eating together at parks make it worthy to be with our family.
