The Best Parks in Qatar 

MIA Park Doha – the Doha Park with the best view 

MIa Park - the best Doha park for views

MIa Park – the best Doha park for views

Why we Love MIA Park: We love MIA Park as in my opinion it is the best Doha Park for views of the city. It has gorgeous views of the Doha skyline from across the bay  and a great cafe to admire it from!

For children there is a fun play area and enough paths for cycling enthusiasts to go round!

In the Doha Winter there are also great markets selling goods by local traders which for me makes it one of the best parks in Qatar.

Oxygen Park – one of the best parks in Doha

Why we love Oxygen Park: one of the newer parks in Doha and in my opinion Oxygen Park is one of the best parks in Doha. It has amazing views of the architectural award nominated Education city mosque which is one of my favourite buildings in the whole of Doha. It is truly beautiful. 

This is one also one of the best Qatar parks for walkers and  is a great place to go for a walk even in summer as there are plenty of shady spots.

Nearest Hotels: 

Sheraton Park – best park in Qatar for water play

Why we love Sheraton Park: This Qatar Park is located on the corniche means that you get some of the best views of West Bay from the park. But best of all there is a great water play area for kid which makes it the best park in Qatar for kids

Also right next to one of my favourite restaurants, la veranda, in all of Doha!

Nearest Hotels: 

Aspire Park

Why we love it: Aspire Park is actually the largest park in Doha. With the space it has this park also has a great running track and it is set up so you can walk a route to ensure you get your ten thousand steps in one walk! 

For families there is also a lovely little boating lake and a bridge that sprays water over you which my daughter goes crazy for. 

It’s proximity to the villagio mall makes it very convenient.

Nearest Hotels: 

Souq Waqif Park

Why we love it: it is the perfect place to let your kids blow off steam before heading to souq to do some serious bargain hunting for the best Doha Souvenirs !

Umbrella Park Doha 

Another newer entry onto the Doha Park scene. Umbrella Park Doha is located on the Doha Corniche opposite the post office building.  This beautiful park is notable for its lovely avenue of umbrellas making it one of the best instagram spots in Doha

Best Family Parks in Qatar Outside of Doha 

As I have always said Qatar is more than just Doha. And while tourists to Doha will usually stick to Doha parks if you are looking for the best family parks in Qatar outside of the capital we recommend: 

  • Al Wakra Park
  • Al Legtaifiya Park
  • Barzan Olymic Park 
  • Al Khor Park – Complete with a little zoo and in proximity to one of my other favourite places in Qatar – Purple Island. 
  • Dahl Alhamam Garden – located in Khalifa City
