As many as 87 public parks are there across Qatar, which were opened by the Public Parks Department at the Ministry of Municipality and Environment, to encourage sport activities among people.

“From 2010 to 2016 the department developed 40 parks,” a source at the ministry told a local media channel. “Parks are very important and Qatar has achieved a number of the projects in this regard as the government gives priority to them,” the source added.

The public parks department is coordinating with Public Works Authority (Ashghal) to see the places which are suitable for plantation. The plantation annually produces between 3 to 4 million small trees and seedlings. “In every public park, we need a minimum 5 engineers; electrical, civil among other staff,” the source said. For smart parks, he said it should offer many services like Wi-Fi, should be friendly with environment and secured especially in the children play grounds. Most of the parks today also offer security employees and cameras. The Public Parks Department at the Ministry recently opened three new public parks at two municipalities.

Three new public parks opened in Doha Municipality and two in Al Khor and Al Dakhira Municipality.” The three new public parks were for families and equipped with all the required facilities including entertainment, sports facilities and play areas for children.
