Grass along the Corniche Qatar Photos,Pictures

The landscaped waterfront provides paved and grassed areas that are popular with walkers, joggers and picnickers. Several hotels, government ministries and the Emir’s working palace are located along the route, and opposite the Diwan, traditional wooden boats are moored in the fishing harbor.
At the harbor entrance is an attractive fountain in the shape of a pearl oyster, a reminder of Qatar’s pearlingheritage. Also accessed from the Corniche are the Museum of Islamic Art , Souq Waqif , the main souq areas, Al Rumeila Park and the Qatar National Theatre.

There are numerous benches dotted along the Corniche, and the sea wall is also of a convenient height to sit on. The paved areas are wheelchair-friendly. Car parking is available along the entire length of the Corniche, and the car park close to the Sheraton Doha Hotel & Resort has restrooms and a small cafeteria.

This park is one of several in which the Ministry of Municipal Affairs and Urban Planning and ICT Qatarintroduced free Wi-Fi access in 2007 as part of its ‘iPark’ initiative.

Powerboat championships and sailing regattas are held in Doha Bay and the Corniche is the ideal place to view firework displays on festive occasions.
