Oxygen Park is a public park in Education City on the outskirts of Qatar’s capital, Doha. Located between the Qatar National Library and Education City Mosque to the North, and Education City Stadium to the South, the park has two "zones" – the Western side for sports (including multi-use pitches and semi-covered running track), and the Eastern for recreation (including "children’s playground, an amphitheatre and individual gardens"). The park also includes several water features and distinctive "balloon lights".
Oxygen Park is an impressively designed and landscaped open space that incorporates sports, recreation and heritage in a relatively cool environment. Although it is suitable for all ages, the park will be most enjoyable for sporty families with older children, looking for a place to kick a ball or run free. Families with younger children will still enjoy taking leisurely walks through the sculpted green pathways.
The Qatar Foundation commissioned AECOM to design the park, under Erik Behrens and James Haig Streeter as Architecture, and Landscape Design Lead respectively.
The park has been used for community events – such as an annual walkathon to raise awareness of diabetes. From December 2019, Monday evenings became designated as "Ladies-Only Night".
The idea of the 130,000-square-meter Oxygen Park is to introduce a green lung in Education City, inviting students and visitors alike to refresh their mind, body, and spirit through active exercise and to explore the symbiotic relationships between oxygen, plants, and healthy purified living.
