Nine public parks in Doha to have more facilities and attractions

Nine public parks currently under construction in Qatar will have more facilities and attractions to better serve visitors, apart from being environment friendly.

“More fitness facilities and equipment, soft rubber tracks for walking, more bathrooms and toilets, and modified playgrounds for children,” are among the attractions, an official told Gulf Times yesterday.

Facilities will be set up for the blind and for people with disabilities and special needs, explained Dalia Sallam, an agriculture engineer at the Public Parks Department of the Ministry of Municipality and Urban Planning (MMUP).

Speaking on the sidelines of a presentation to Doha Gardens Club members, she noted that visitors will find the new parks greener and colourful.

“These parks will also have better playgrounds suitable for children from two to five years, and for five to 12 years,” Sallam said while recalling that earlier the facilities in parks were only for small children.

Besides beautifying and making the parks environment-friendly, she said visitors will also enjoy free WiFi connection.

The new attractions such as lighted fountains, nurseries, barbeque and picnic areas and cafeterias will entice more families to spend their free time at these parks, according to Sallam.
