Shaab Park Before Shaab Park

Post by Mark

A couple of weeks back I posted about how Shaab Park was shutting down for good and that I had memories and photos of the park from back in the 80s. Well I ended up finding one picture, I’m guessing taken around 1985 since I look like I’m 7 or so I guess? (I’m in white). The park back then was literally just a park, it wasn’t fenced up or anything, it was just a large green area with a handful of rides and play areas.

The building in the background was the Abdullah Al-Salem School which was demolished back in 2014 to make way for they new Abdullah Al-Salem Cultural Centre that’s opening up next month.
