Over the years, Qatar has invested heavily into creating green areas around the country in the form of public parks. The popularity of parks has grown steadily, with hundreds of people visiting them every day to relax, meet friends and also exercise.

For frequent visitors to Qatar’s public parks, there are reasons to be happy. The country’s Ministry of Municipality has announced that public parks will remain open until late at night, from 5am to 2am, during Eid al-Fitr holidays.

“We’re expecting a large number of visitors to public parks during Eid al-Fitr due to the pleasant weather. So the Ministry of Municipality has prepared the public parks operating across the country,” said Mohammed Abdullah, Head of the Parks Section in the Doha Municipality.

He said necessary maintenance work had been carried out at different parks by deploying additional cleaning workforce and security guards.

“With the development of a sporty culture in the community, public parks have started receiving a growing number of visitors, especially during holidays and festivities. In addition to several family parks, there’re a number of parks in Qatar which are receiving general public including families and individuals,” said Abdullah.

“Most public parks in the municipality will be open for visitors from 5am until 2am, and they’ll remain closed for three hours for cleaning and maintenance,” he added.

Public parks have been fitted with fitness equipment, children’s play areas and jogging tracks, some of them air-conditioned. Parks have been built following sustainability goals to cut carbon footprint and provide fresh air to visitors.

According to figures released by the Ministry of Municipality, Public parks received 131,961 visitors during Eid al-Fitr holidays last year.

Public parks in Doha Municipality attracted the highest number of visitors — 50,000 — followed by parks in Al Rayan Municipality (35,500 people).

The number of public parks in the country saw a 164% increase, going up from 56 in 2010 to 148 in 2022.
