New park with running track being built in Doha

A city can never have too many green spaces, and luckily for us Doha is set to get yet another public park later this year.

The Post Office Plaza development will see a 900m jogging track, a 1.5km long cycle path and various walkways added to the public space next to the Q-Post building.

The plaza is designed to look like three interconnected Qatari postage stamps, and the open spaces will be used for events and festivals in the heart of the city.

It is part of plans to beautify the area. The project will also provide service buildings including a prayer hall and washrooms.

Eng. Maryam Al-Kuwari, project design manager at the Supervisory Committee of Beautification of Roads and Public Places in Qatar at Ashghal, said the space is a ‘spatial and functional extension of the Q-Post building because of its important place in the hearts of the people of Qatar over the past years’.

The project is set to be complete by the end of 2020.

The news comes after it was announced that three new parks are being built in Doha in 2021.
