Box Park, located at the old Doha Port, is the newest trending destination in Qatar. Made of colorful recycled containers with scenic panoramic views, it’s easy to see why. The ILoveQatar.net team recently visited Box Park to give you a sneak peek!
Note: As per COVID-19 restrictions set by the government, please make sure to abide by all precautionary measures such as wearing a mask, physical distancing, showing green status on the Ehteraz app, and frequent hand washing.
The redevelopment project at Doha port is filled with recycled shipping containers painted in bright colors. Most of the containers are allocated for commercial and retail spaces. There’s a small grocery store, coffee shop, and other retail shops that are currently open.
Some of the companies that are already operating or already have signage include Azure Supermarket (open from 7:30 am to 11 pm), Rasen Diving, Empire Coffee, International Spearfishing Academy, Qatar International Tours, Bahr Senyar, Professional Marine Upholstery, Abe's Gulf Marine Services, Tea Time, Majesty Marine, QTR Fish, and Speed Marine.
Even the elevators are housed inside a vertically-placed shipping container! There are also three food trucks in the parking area (Simit Sarayi, Chapati & Karak, and Basta).
Aside from the brightly colored walls of the shipping containers, there are also artsy walls you can take photos with. Like the two warehouses at the parking area entrance, one is bright yellow with a big smiley face, and the other is a dark blue with an outline of the Doha skyline filled with colorful streaks.
From the Box Park, you’ll be able to see picturesque views of the marina, Ras Abu Aboud Stadium, Doha skyline, Museum of Islamic Park, and National Museum of Qatar. To get the best views, go up to the upper floor and walk around to find the perfect spot for your photo.
There are also toilets, sitting areas, a praying room, and a shower area. There's also plenty of parking spaces available. You can also see a wide green space on the other side of the road, which is currently taking shape. There's also exercise equipment beyond the wooden sitting area, which is currently closed due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Location: Old Doha Port
