The Crescent Park in Lusail is one of the newer parks in Qatar. It opened up in March 2019, and is truly an oasis in the middle of a concrete jungle that offers respite and relaxation from daily routines. The park's design is inspired by the desert and its sand dunes; it's been built on the concept of sustainability with recycled water being used to irrigate the well-manicured green areas so you can enjoy nature even while in the midst of Lusail City's urban development.

Let's tell you more about the Crescent Park and what makes it a park in Qatar that you just have to visit, and we guarantee, your whole family will fall in love with!
The Crescent Park is located in a beautiful open space (275,000 square metres) that's surrounded by the sites and sounds of urban development. As soon as you enter the park, the serenity and peacefulness of the park overtake your senses and you become one with the natural oasis, and forget about the concrete jungle that surrounds the park. The park is lush green, with plenty of flowers, bushes and trees, and there is no dearth of things to do here.
In front of the play area, you'll find the maze which is made up of well-manicured hedges and offers a little escape from life. Enter the maze and find your way out to the other side. See how long it takes to get through the well-thought-out maze. It's a treat for everyone no matter how young or old you are.
If you're a biking enthusiast, you'll love the Crescent Park. Just bring your bike with you when you come to this park and cycle your way through the winding bike trail and enjoy the freshness of the green areas, the flowers, the trees in this park oasis.
The Arch is another unique feature of the Crescent Park. It's a huge steel structure and the best thing about it is you can go to the very top of the Arch and see the town around you. It's quite the view, and there are stairs on both sides of the beautiful steel structure so you can go up and come down. The viewing space at the top can accommodate a little over a 100 people, and offers a breathtaking view of the park and the surrounding areas.
One of the best things about this park is that there is plenty of seating available around the different areas of the park where you can sit, relax and absorb the nature that's all around you.
If you're looking for a place where you can play basketball, volleyball or football, this is the place to be. The Crescent Park has a beautiful sunken pitch that's just perfect to practice your footballing skills. There are also two volleyball courts, three tennis courts and three basketball courts for you to show your tricks with a ball.
Note: At present, the courts are closed till further notice as a COVID-19 precautionary measure.
One of the most unique features of this park is its play area that's been purpose-built for the children. Your children will fall in love with this place and may never want to leave. The children's play area is made up of a huge red crab that you can climb all over, and a bunch of wood pieces that are also ideal to climb over and under. Then, there's a big wooden boat that's connected to a building that looks like the Fanar Tower near Souq Waqif. There are slides attached to both these structures and lots of imaginative ways to use all the different things here. The kids will love it, and so will you.
Note: At present, the play area is closed till further notice as a COVID-19 precautionary measure.
The park has 530 parking spaces and ease of access to all the park's facilities. There are separate praying areas for men and women and toilets.
Two restaurants are also in the process of being completed which will serve to keep your hunger at bay while you're having a fun day at the Crescent Park.
Note: This is not a pet-friendly park.
It's very important to follow all the rules and regulations put forth by the Park:
It's really quite easy to get to the park. You can drive here and when the Lusail Tram Service launches towards the end of 2021, you’ll be able to enjoy direct access to the tram service in Lusail, which will make it easier to get to and back from all over Doha. (Qatar Tribune)
