This garden is a modern and urban oasis in a Muslim country. Muslim countries, like all other countries in the world today, are becoming more and more populous in the urban centres. Traditional architecture of earth and stone is being rapidly replaced with concrete and rebar.
Traditional Muslim houses have courtyards and gardens but this is not possible in the new urban environment. In this series we are going to see a number of answers to the question: how can you have a garden with limited space?
Special areas of the park were designed and equipped for children to play safely outdoors.
While traditional elements of the Islamic style garden may be stripped away the play spaces for children and the well traveled walking paths make this a more active than contemplative space.
We hope to review more examples of traditional gardens and natural sciences soon for this series.
Please share your ideas for helping children learn about Islam and nature.
