Al Shaheed Park – Kuwait

Details

AVAILABLE NOW!

Al Shaheed Park is Kuwait’s historical, environmental and cultural platform with cutting-edge architecture and artwork. Providing the public with high quality programs, events and spaces, part of its mission is to spread awareness and to educate the public on the importance of the country’s land, history and environment.

The park was developed by Al Diwan Al Amiri (a civic organization) to revamp and reclaim a portion of the former Green Belt, a series of gardens built from 1961-64 between the old city of Kuwait and its expansion. The nearly 20 hectare park was constructed in four successive stages, from 2013-2017.

Al Shaheed Park is also one of the largest overstructure greenroofs in the world at about 75,000 m2. In addition, several greenroofed buildings sit atop the park including on museums, the Visitor Center, and restaurants. Several living walls are located within the park, too, including at the main entrance Celebration Gate.
