Qatar is home to a number of places that have transformed the desert country of 2.9 million population into one of the most desirable destinations all year around. Qatar isn't lacking in gorgeous architecture with stunning and unique features, and its global reputation for extreme building continues to grow as the country has been adding outdoor air-conditioned developments. 

Qatar is known for its hot and humid summers that stay for about 5 months of the year. But this doesn't mean you can not go out and around the country. Qatar is dotted with outdoor air-conditioned spaces, listed below are some of them: 

Al Gharafa Park

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 square meters 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.

21 High Street - Katara Cultural Village

Developed and managed by Ali Bin Ali Holding, ‘The Ultimate Outdoor Shopping Destination’ made its debut in March 2019. 21 High street is the ultimate outdoor shopping destination that also houses the popular luxury department store - Galeries Lafayette.  The street is where retail meets and celebrates art & culture along with fine dining. With a series of features, some of which are the first of their kind in Qatar, 21 High st offers a unique outdoor shopping experience with a regulated, cool, comfortable outdoor environment to enjoy throughout the year.

Oxygen Park

Oxygen Park adds a giant splash of green to the desert city. It is built as a multi-purpose public recreational space of Education City by Qatar Foundation.  The 130,000 square meter Oxygen Park acts as a green lung in Education City, inviting students and visitors alike to refresh.

A 1.6-kilometer running track winds its way around cooled, partially enclosed tunnels and covered walkways and the grounds contain sports pitches, a play garden, and walking tracks. 

The path and running tracks are embedded in the topography to create an exciting training ground with looping tracks, cooled tunnel segments, and steep hills. The night-time lighting scheme and refreshing water features provide an attractive setting for evening sports activities and individual workouts during cooler hours of the day. Mondays and Tuesdays are ladies-only days at the park!
