Old Park Revamped
Al Khor Park, one of the oldest in the country, has recently opened after having been closed for the last six years while undergoing a QR250 million renovation ($68 million). The new park has an aviary, well-manicured green spaces, a waterfall, water fountains, a miniature golf course, a battery-operated train that can hold 36 people, and a small zoo with oryx, emu, zebras and exotic birds, among others. There is also a large children’s play area, a basketball court, amphitheater, skating area, 26 restrooms, and a couple of cafeterias. The park is open daily—except Friday mornings--from 8am to 10pm daily. The entry is QR5 ($1.4)
