Qatar’s parks are extremely beautiful and are the perfect places to spend quality time with friends and family. If you’re someone who loves visiting parks, then you really have to go to Muglina Unit Park, located right at the intersection of Al Corniche Street and Ras Abu Aboud Expressway. To pinpoint a bit more, this park is located right across from the National Museum of Qatar.
If you haven’t already been to this calm and quiet park at the heart of Doha yet, then it is surely a treat for you. We give you some of the must things to check out here.
Note: As per COVID-19 restrictions set by the government, please make sure to abide by all the precautionary measures such as wearing a mask, physical distancing, showing your Ehteraz green status, and frequent hand washing.
Located at the centre of the park is a lovely, curved bridge that welcomes visitors. This is one of the main attractions here and is perfect for children as they can play and run around this wonderful structure. This is also a great spot to take some pictures as you will get an elevated view of the entire park from up here.
As you get off one end of the bridge, the pathway leads you to an arch monument, the design of which is inspired by Qatari architecture. Continue your walk till you reach a sitting deck, below which you will find a beautiful bed of colourful flowers. Wonderful, isn't it?
What is at the other end of the bridge, you ask? You will find a watchtower standing tall, in all its glory. Four entrances give you access to go into it from any direction. From the centre of the watchtower, the entrances form the perfect frame for you to take some Instagrammable photos from here.
Beautiful stone walkways are laid across and around the park where you can have fun going up and down the pathways. Add some extra steps to your every day walking while also getting some fresh sea breeze at this park.
The central space of the park is covered in a green carpet of well-maintained and freshly cut grass. This is the perfect spot for families to sit down for a while, play and also enjoy Qatar’s cool evenings.
A set of 10 pillars form an ‘L-shaped’ monument, located right next to the arch at the park. Take photos from the stairs that lead up to the monument as the pillars form a magnificent backdrop for your photo!
A heritage house called the Al Khulaifi Heritage House which was restored by Qatar Museums (Heritage Area 20970) can be found at one end of the park. This has an onsite Middle-Eastern restaurant called Bayt Sharq which is going to open soon. Do check this out too!
There are signs at the park prohibiting barbecue, cycling, playing sports and pets at the Muglina Unit Park.
