Have you been to the newly opened Boulevard in Salmiyah? It took quite a number of years to complete the project, didn't it? It's a beautiful oasis of lush greenery with lakes, man made rivulets, in sprawling 353,000 square meters with all kinds of facilities for recreation, sport, fitness, leisure, dining, shopping, entertainment, and children's play area. There's a Multipurpose Hall for functions, conventions and seminars. The Amphitheater is crowned on the side by a charming placid lake. Only some of the retail shops in the Boulevard Mall have opened for now, and the rest will be opening shortly. The food court on the first floor offers a spectacular view of the beautiful fountain in the lake across. You will see restaurants by the lake as well with both indoor and outdoor dining.
To walk around the pathways or sit amid diverse plants, trees, flowers and luscious green grass all around is bound to offer the alluring serenity you find only the magic of nature can offer, besides the benefits of walking. This is the sort of place not only grown ups would enjoy but children would experience an exciting sense of freedom to run and play and even explore the vast expanse of the green belt. I don't think picnics with food are allowed. Understandably to avoid the trash and litter some people are bound to leave behind . No worries about food or beverages because there is a nice food court in the mall as I mentioned earlier. There's ample car parking all around as well in the basement. A train service within the Boulevard which is actually a shuttle service hopefully would be functional soon. There are rest rooms near the courts and in the mall.
Volley ball, basket ball, tennis courts, cricket stadium are all near each other in a corner away from the main entrance and the Mall with separate car parking facility.
The weather is just beautiful. So head out there much before sunset, walk around the mall, experience the food court, go out in the open and explore the green surroundings, the walking bridge, color changing tunnel, climb the green hill and bask in the view, sit by one of the lakes, enjoy the sunset, the blue hour and watch the fountain and park light up at night.
