Kuwait City, Kuwait

Al Shaheed Park

Google Street View

Outside the Corniche, our other favorite place to run in Kuwait City is Al Shaheed Park. This beautifully landscaped park features walking/jogging paths, a museum, restaurants & botanical gardens. It’s ~2 km from one end of the park to the other, including the Al Shaheed Park-Phase 2, just across Cairo St. Along the paths, you’ll see a museum, numerous outdoor desert sculptures, a central fountain, and a small lake. There are good views of Kuwait’s skyscrapers when running toward the water. Al Shaheed Park is part of theĀ  Kuwait National Cultural District, and is a recognized ‘green roof project’, tyring to bring the benefits of greenery to this dry, developed desert city.

Add-Ons: The Corniche waterfront path is 1.5 km away. Use Mohamad Abdulmohsin Al Kharafi St.
