Qatar is surely moving ahead of the game in providing world-class facilities when it comes to public parks. By the end of 2021, Qatar gifted its residents and citizens the first-ever park with air-conditioned jogging, cycling, and pedestrian tracks. This phenomenal park is situated in Al Gharafa on an area of about 50,000 meters square to serve around 3000 daily visitors of all age groups.  It is simply known as ‘’Al Gharafa Park’’, and is very close to Al Gharafa Sports Club and Thani Bin Jasim Stadium.

Al Gharrafa park with its strategic facility of air-conditioned tracks encourages the citizens and residents to choose a more active and healthy lifestyle even during the hotter months of the year. The park is beautiful, with ample greenery and trees providing a healthy environment for a fresh breath of air away from the bustle of the city. The park has:

  • 657-meter air-conditioned jogging tracks and pedestrian walkway
  • 639-meter cushioned bike path 
  • Two exercise areas equipped with fitness equipment
  • Children’s play area, divided according to age groups from 2-5 years and 6-12 years, also considering children with special needs.
  • Male and female prayer area

The park also has food kiosks for quick snacks, hot & cold beverages, and more.  You will also find a bicycle rental kiosk, and numerous bicycle parking spots, as well as garden furniture including benches, shades, and garbage cans. The park also features green walls as the exterior of male and female toilet buildings making them prominent to locate. You can also spot drinking water basins around you in the park. 

The park is well lit and the track and other parts of the park become more attractive during the night. The weather is cold in Doha right now but this park will allow people to enjoy and workout outdoors in the summers.

If you live in Al Gharafa or are planning to move here then this park proves to be a great facility for the residents living in this area. You will find a lot of villa compounds and stand-alone villas to rent in this area. Click here to view properties in Al Gharafa. The most popular landmark in Gharafa is the Education City which is home to one of the FIFA 2022 World Cup Stadium, Qatar National Library, Mathaf Museum, and Oxygen Park. You will have access to the Sidra Medicine Hospital and various other medical centers. Malls like Ezdan Mall, Gulf Mall, Landmark Mall, and Lulu Hypermarket are in close vicinity.
