The 5/6 Park in Doha’s Onaiza area is yet another favourite spot for Qatar residents.
One of the new recreation spots in the heart of the city, the beautiful location received a good number of visitors during Eid al-Adha holidays.
The park is close to many tourist and commercial spots in the country, such as Al Dafna, Lusail, and Katara.
There are shaded areas for families to relax, play areas for children with games catering to those of different ages, areas designated for celebrations, and spaces to display various forms of artwork, in addition to areas specified for fitness equipment.
There are 1.4km of pedestrian and jogging paths, and 1.1km of cycle path, in addition to bicycle parking slots.
Stone and sand paths have been set up for pedestrians inside the park, a first for public parks.
A hedge maze, designed in the shape of Qatar’s map, is a distinctive feature of the 5/6 Park. The maze’s entrances and exits are named after coastal cities of Qatar.
The hill next to the maze is about 5m high and located in the centre of the park.
Being higher than its surroundings, the hill gives an overall 360° view of the park.
The park contains open green areas of nearly 122,000sq m, with lots of shrubs and tree fences.
About 10% of the trees planted in the park are of Qatari origin.
The 5/6 Park is a joint initiative of the Supervisory Committee of Beautification of Roads and Public Places in Qatar, the Ministry of Municipality and Environment, Qatar Museums, Ashghal, and the Qatar Fine Arts Association.
