The Aspire Park is WOW.
Green everywhere, little lake, running tracks and well maintained.
It is really relaxing!

“My favorite place to run!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Easy to get to, parking is easy, free to run around the soft track, which is just over 5k (I think). Lots of greenary and a wonderful park with a pond beside it so you can go for a picnic afterwards!

“Look at the Grass, Sit on the Grass...But Dont you Dare Play Ball on The grass”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Given that the natural terrain around Qatar is sandy/dusty its great to have a kick about with a ball on a bit of grass. Apparently this is not allowed....even for little kids. Its just down right ridiculous. Anyone that has tried to hire a pitch in Qatar will know how difficult it can be to get one to have a friendly game of ball, you would think parks open to the public would have no ridiculous rules like no ball playing... there was practically no one at the park so it wasn`t as if we would get in the way of someone.....Its not just this park, its other parks also such as Al Rayyan, a massive grass area with no one on it. Its no wonder Qatar has the 4th highest Diabetes rate in the world and second highest prevalence of obesity worldwide....there`s not even a park that kids can chase a ball in.....also supposed to be the world cup hosts??? Ironic and Ridiculous.
There`s various interviews with doctors and conferences being held about the obesity and diabetes thing....is it just me or is the answer right in front of there eyes??? public parks where you can play football/tennis/tag rugby or whatever...just being active in general.

“Ummm...family only? Seriously?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

So if I'm just a single guy, I can't take a walk around in the park, or go for a run? I came to this park once and the security guards freaked out! They all came up to me and asked me to leave, screaming "family only, sir! family only!" not only this was rude, it was also embarrassing! I don't get the point of this park as it's always empty.
