I just wonder what could make them choose that name, can't see the relation between Andalucía and Bahrain so it surprised me.

Off the top of my head, maybe the fact that its part of our history... That arabs conquered Al Andalus and had a civilization/empire there (however short-lived it may have been)... And the fact that that was a green area... Relatively lush landscape, as opposed to the vast deserts that were conquered... Maybe that's why they chose to call a Park (Park = Green) such a name!
