Al Bidda Park, formerly known as Al Rumaila Park, is a park in Doha, Qatar next to Qatar National Theater. It is near Doha Bay, overlooks the Doha Corniche, and is one of the oldest and most popular parks in Doha. It is one of the areas used for birdwatching. The park includes a children's playground, small shops, and the Cultural Village, a cultural heritage center. After being closed for renovations in November 2014, the park was reopened in February 2018 in commemoration of National Sports Day.
Al Bidda Park is located at the historical heart of Doha and was first documented in 1681. Al Bidda area existed before Doha developed and included a rectangular fort, houses, and industry associated with trading and pearl diving. Much of the local housing for the pearl divers were located in the Al Rumailah area which now sits at the heart of Al Bidda Park. Geographically, Al Bidda Park sits at the center of a sweeping bay. Offshore reefs protect the natural harbor from storms. The land rises to the rear and at its height, there are outcrops of sandy-colored Dolomitic Limestone. The strategic elevated position, as well as easy access to the shoreline for pearl fishing and trading, was the likely reason why the first settlement was founded at this location. There is also Al Bidda Tower which is a 2005 reconstruction of a watchtower built in the 16th Century. It was used to monitor pearl diving boats in the bay and also helped in repelling attacks.
