RAS AL HAMRA - THE OASIS PARK

Oman

The Oasis Park provides an open space for the recreational needs of the residents within Ras Al Hamra. Located at a strategic node, the park is fed by the primary pedestrian and cycle network ensuring that it will be in constant use. A study of alluvial landscapes informs a naturalistic arrangement of spaces, seemingly carved by stormwater out of the valley floor. Three major spaces for recreation are linked by this natural wadi landscape which runs between them and an arterial foot/cycle path enhanced by flowering trees to create a seasonal pathway. The Oasis Park serves not only as a green lung, but also offers attractive parkland views for the townhouses and apartments.
