The Supervisory Committee of Beautification of Roads and Public Places in Qatar has announced completion of main works on Al Daayen Park Project, during an event on Thursday with participation of students from Simaisma and Al Daayen Schools who planted trees in the park, as part of "Qatar Beautification and Our Kids Planting Trees" campaign to "plant million trees", implemented by the Committee in cooperation with the Ministry of Municipality.
Al Daayen Park includes open green spaces with an area of 25,000 square meters, with benches and retiring facilities, along with 450 trees, making it a preferred visit space for families of Al Daayen and Simaisma. It also includes dedicated kids play areas, sports arena, and dedicated paths for pedestrians, joggers, and cyclists. The park is also designed to be user friendly for people with special needs.
The project also included the provision of services including female prayer area and toilets. Aesthetic lights with dimly lit lighting poles ensure privacy for the visitors.
Deputy Chairman of Supervisory Committee of Beautification of Roads and Public Places in Qatar Eng. Sarah Kafood, stated that she is happy with the growing success of Qatar Beautification and Our Kids Planting Trees campaign, with a record tree planting of more than 550,000 trees so far. She highlighted that this benchmark achievement was not possible without participation of many entities in public and private sectors.
Eng. Sara added that the Committee is cooperating with Ministry of Municipality to increase green spaces in various areas in Qatar. Thus, large-scale land areas are allocated to build central parks, while smaller spaces are allocated to Al Furjan Parks and green plaza.
On turn, Project Design Manager at the Supervisory Committee of Beautification of Roads and Public Places in Qatar at Ashghal Eng. Maryam Al Kuwari, said that the parks design is inspired by the meaning of the Arabic word Al Daayen, which implies camel beauty and the resting place of caravans in the past, in addition to its location in Al Daayen area in the northern part of Qatar, which was considered as a resting spot for caravans coming from the north or south of Qatar. The design also considered the parks proximity to schools and Al Daayen Service Center, using it as a suitable nearby place for people of the region to spend leisure time during weekend, or to practice physical exercise after a stressful day.
She added that fancy lighting was added in the design, covering the service buildings to enhance the design concept of the park linking it to the Qatari identity with shining lights on metal partitions to reflect shades, and depicting movement of caravan behind its herdsman.
