Perhaps the most famous of Qatar's green spaces is MIA Park. Sprawling and spectacular, modern and majestic, the park is one of the most popular spots in the city for families, joggers, walkers or those just hoping to catch one of the most dazzling sunset views anywhere in the world. Runners can enjoy the 1km crescent pathway that hugs the waterfront, while families can enjoy the wide open spaces to eat, sit, play and relax together.
Public Art in the Park
MIA Park is also home to Richard Serra's 7 – a stunning vertical steel sculpture directly across the water from the museum. It is the artist's first public piece of art in the Middle East – and well worth checking out at sunrise or sunset for some of the most iconic photo ops in Doha.
Liam Gillick's Folded Extracted Personified, a large-scale interactive work installed throughout the park, consists of multiple unique head-in-the-hole panels. Commissioned for the inauguration of the National Museum of Qatar, the work draws inspiration from the collections of both NMoQ and MIA.
