Baladna Park had been on our list of places to go for a while and we went with a group of friends during the school holidays in January. It’s a bit out of the way, almost an hour’s drive from Doha in Al Khor, but well worth the trip as there is lots to see and do.
The farm started in 2014 as a sheep and goat farm. In 2017, after the economic and diplomatic embargo, Baladna shipped in dairy cows via plane to replace the milk that had previously been imported from Saudi Arabia. Since then Baladna has achieved its aim of meeting domestic demand and now exports products to Afghanistan and other countries. Today, Baladna is one of the largest sheep and livestock farms in the GCC. The restaurant and amusement park on site have become popular with visitors from Doha and overseas.
