Qatar is taking its commitment to beating the heat to the next level with a new public park featuring air-conditioned jogging tracks. The Rawdat Al Hamama Public Park is set to become a central hub for surrounding areas, complete with expansive green spaces, native trees, ample parking, and designated play areas for children of all ages.
Project Manager Jassim Abdulrahman Fakhroo explains that central parks differ from neighborhood parks, with thousands of square meters and amenities like fitness equipment to cater to all age groups.
With examples like Al Gharafa Public Park and Umm Al Seneem Public Park, it’s clear that Qatar is dedicated to providing outdoor options for all residents, no matter the weather.
Qatar’s commitment to green spaces is growing, with plans to increase the number of public beaches, neighborhood parks, and green spaces.
The Supervisory Committee of Beautification of Roads and Public Places in Qatar aims to promote healthy lifestyles by encouraging outdoor activities in parks and beaches. The committee’s objective is to provide more green spaces in neighborhoods, with the key benefit being their proximity to homes.
Paving way for greener nation
The committee’s efforts also aim to reduce Qatar’s carbon footprint, with studies showing the positive impact of greenery on the environment and people.
Qatar is taking steps to address climate change by implementing initiatives to reduce its carbon footprint. The Qatar National Vision 2030 aims to achieve sustainable development, according to Minister of Environment and Climate Change Sheikh Faleh bin Nasser bin Ahmed bin Ali Al Thani.
Moreover, the country’s Ministry of Environment and Climate Change plans to adopt a strategy for sustainable development that includes clean energy, solar power, and renewable energy to expand electric transportation and reduce environmental pollutants.
