The first thing that will attract you is the beautiful green space in the park. The design of the plaza is inspired by Qatari postage stamps, pays homage to the Qatar Post building right next to it. It is done in such a way that three interconnected postal stamps will form the open spaces. This is surely a unique feature that you will not find anywhere else in Qatar. There is also ample seating area, spread across the park.
