The main artery of the island is the linear park, which is dotted with stores and restaurants: an artificial salt canal connected to the sea, where it is possible to enjoy sports such as fishing and boating as well as many other activities. The project is led by Qetaifan Projects, a real estate development company established in 2017, and is just one of the various projects of sustainable smart cities included in Qatar’s long-term economic vision.
