Aspire Zone Foundation’s six-day programme of activities organised in celebration of Eid Al-Adha drew to a close yesterday. In total, 13,000 members of the public visited Aspire Zone during the holiday period to enjoy the celebratory atmosphere around the precinct.
Such events are an important part of Aspire Zone Foundation’s ongoing engagement with the local community and reflect its increasing popularity as a destination for families to celebrate Eid and other occasions.
The programme attracted a large number of families and offered a broad range of activities with something for everyone. These included paddle boating in the lake at Aspire Park, as well as a variety of water sports shows and performances that took place on the second day of Eid.
Children enjoyed pony rides, and elsewhere remote controlled car races added a sense of excitement and brought something new to this year’s programme. These proved to be very popular in attracting participants as well as spectators.
Families were able to mix fun with fitness at Aspire Zone during Eid Al-Adha, as many of the facilities were open to the public during this time. By accessing the fields, courts and pitches, sports enthusiasts were able to enjoy football, basketball, volleyball and more. Facilities in use included the Aspire Zone public football pitches in Aspire Park and near Khalifa stadium; the tennis courts in the ladies’ club; and the multipurpose facility for basketball and volleyball in Aspire Park.
The busy programme of activity continues in the coming months as Aspire Zone Foundation will be organising and hosting a number of events including Qatar’s strongest man in November, and the 50 KM World Championship in December. These are in addition to ongoing programmes and activities such as the Aquathon, Run the Park, Splash and Dash and cycling in Aspire.
