If you’re looking for a good park to visit over the weekend, then you should know about the new traditional family park that has being recently opened for the public. Located in Al-Khor, Al-Tawasul Traditional Park is built under Ras Laffan Industrial City Community Outreach Programme (RLIC-COP). While covering an area of around 28,500 sqm, the public park consists of a play area for the kids, a football ground, athlete walkway and facilities to house a collection of birds and animals. A very interesting feature of this park is that it has a unique environment section covering an area of about 600 sqm. Also, many varieties of trees have been planted inside the park and for fencing. Another significant feature of the park would be the traditional fountain that has been built inside it.
