Have you guys noticed the area between alrayyan st and al corniche being prepared for something ?

also, the Qatar News Agency building and the few buildings around it were demolished. the only thing left is Qatar Bowling Center.

I think they finally decided to start on the central park project we've been waiting for.

Not only that, but I saw on many sections of Wadi el Sail lots of sand being dumped and layered, they say it is for national day as there are camels roaming around there (Yes there are camels in Wadi el Sail !!) but it is for the park project =D separating the two Central business districts.

ههههههه, قطر سون عاد !! فضحتنا :nuts:

Yeah I knew it would seem weird for camels to be there, but they are there ! and yes its for national day only (hopefully).

Its going to be amazing, on one side a deeply cultural section (Souq Waqif, Mushiereb, National Museum, Museum of Islamic arts etc) and on the other side an ultra modern skyline.

This project will help provide much more public space for families and such, instead of everyone clogging the corniche and bidda park.

Construction in full swing for new park


The project behind the current Al Rumaillah Park, is expected to offer an additional green area in Doha

Construction has gained momentum for a massive public park, quite possibly the largest in Doha in terms of size, Gulf Times has learnt.
Located chiefly in Al Rumaillah east zone, and parts of Al Bidda and Wadi Al Sail, excavation work covering most of the designated area has been completed, a source said yesterday. “Work has been going on here for around a year, with laying of pipelines to irrigate the area. In about 10 days, grass should start to grow in some parts,” the source said.

Al Rumaillah, Al Bidda, and Wadi Al Sail used to be one of the oldest inhabited areas of Doha, before they were cleared in the run up to the Asian Games, which was hosted in 2006. Wadi Al Sail was the most recently-demolished area. “After the initial digging, pipes with a diameter of 8” to 1” were laid because a lot of water was required to turn the arid area into a heavily-landscaped public recreational area,” the source said.

More than one company is involved in landscaping the area, ostensibly due to the sheer size of the project. The park, the name of which could not be confirmed, borders Al Khaleej Street (on Gulf Street past Qatar Bowling Centre), Majlis Al Taawon Street (GCC Street leading to Commercialbank Plaza), and Mohamed Bin Thani Street (leading to the Civil Defence headquarters).

The project design has also made provisions for parking of a large number of vehicles and the project is being executed by the Private Engineering Bureau, the Emiri Diwan’s construction arm, which has prestigious public projects to its credit such as the popular Souq Waqif and the State Mosque.

I love this idea a lot really! I just wish the whole Cornish area will get a makeover. Nothing too fancy. Just adding an extra lane for cars, eliminating the stonge-age roundabouts (which were since the 50's!), and maybe shifting the coastline by 30 meters inwards from all sides in order to increase space in the actual cornish.


It may sound fancy, but will take maybe a year or two to complete.
