During the National Day and Liberation Day of Kuwait, I heard about the Yarmouk Park turning into an environmental park with the efforts of KISR (Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research). 

KISR organized Kuwait's Environmental Hour on 27 February through a project where recycled materials were used to create installations through innovative and artistic designs at the Yarmouk Park. The KISR team was led by Dr. Noura Al Jandal. 

We visited the much talked about park last Saturday morning. Apart from the  recent installation work at the park , a  team of people were busy working on new installations,  creating new structures and artistic designs using recycled material to add to the existing beautification of the park.  Recycled articles and objects were used to create flowers, tree, chairs, seating, sofa, and so on. As a part of the ongoing new work, we were shown birds created using old nuts and bolts and a sand sculpture statue. The additional work will take about a month or less, said one of the supervisors. You could visit the park now if you want to take a look at the existing work on display, or in a few weeks if you want to see the completed work. 

I can't wait to go back in a month's time to see to the rest of the work. Here are some photos I took.
