Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Where do I start, our family was so excited to visit here but sadly disappointed to see the poor care of the animals, Al Khor park and Zoo has two parts, I believe the zoo should be shut down due to the poor care and environment the animals live( old food and poo in their cages , being forced fed branches and cheese puffs) I would understand if this was in the evening (old food ect) however I was the first in the line at the time of opening, cages should not look like that.
I would however say that the play park had lots of activities and items for the kids to play on and was very good.

Amazing place to spend time with your family. Friendly security staff will assist you to buy tickets. Huge playground for the children.

This is a nice park space with nice open fields and a big family area in the middle. We would say the animals are the side attraction here but they all appear to be in good health. We spent a couple of hours here walking around the park and looking at the animals but we could spend more if we brought chairs and items for a picnic. Some of the enclosures were empty when we visited and we felt with some upgrades this would be a good facility. We felt the aviary area and giraffe enclosure were the best. There is a small area where they have some small primate species and surprisingly Bengal cats.

There is lots of parking out here and the cost to enter is 15 QAR per adult. Tickets have to be purchased online using the QR code and then the security guard will scan the tickets to let you in. It is important to note that the pandas are not here and are in a separate park that costs 50 QAR to enter and if you're planning to see the pandas you have to buy your tickets on Oun application and they suggest arriving before 3 pm as we found out. There are a few vendors on site and they are affordable as well.

This place is an average poorly maintained zoo.... It just has a few animals and any average zoo in a tier-2 city in India will be far far better.
To make it worse there is no official website where we can find the timings. We made a huge expensive trip from Doha assuming the park to be open thru night, only to find the zoo closed.

It's like a little slice of nature paradise in the desert. The park has this chilled-out vibe that's perfect for a weekend escape or a casual stroll. First off, the greenery is legit. I'm talking about lush lawns, shady trees, and flowers that make you forget you're in the middle of a desert. And if you're into picnics, they've got these cool designated spots with tables and benches. here's a play area for the kiddos that'll tire them out (cue parents' happy dance), and the mini-zoo is a nice touch.

This is the farthest I travelled away from my place in The Pearl, Doha. Since from my place there's no direct metro or mowasalat buses until the location of the park so I took a metro train, a bus and UBER to reach the place that cost me 20 qar one way ( total 40qar two-way). I must say the travel is worth it.

I didn't know that you need an online booking for the ticket. The guard on duty is very helpful in booking me on the venue itself. The ticket cost 15qar. And I say it's all worth it.

The animals: from lions, tigers, bears, cheetah, zebras, monkeys, rhinoceros, snake, wolf, deers, ostrich, giraffe and a lot more are all very active and alive, which is a very good indication that the animals are well taken care of compared to the other zoos that i'd been that most of the animals were just lying down due to old age and poor maintenance.

The birds sanctuary is also worth mentioning. The idea of an enclosed area is so astonishing while visitors can access through it and physically observing the birds, I mean you're walking around as the birds flying around. The whole area is covered with net that's so high and so wide. The design is very brilliant.

The paintings on the wall surrounded within the park is simply not painting. When you looked closely you will observed that it were sculpted meticulously. Another astonishing details about this place.

The park is also very clean, considering several food shops and stalls alike. I eat at Nakahat. The staff there are very nice. The meals are very affordable and delicious. Also encountered several staffs/ guards within the park zoo they are all very kind and accommodating.

Alkhor zoo is by far the best of all the zoos I've been visited in my life.

Can't wait to be back.

The park is around 40 km from the city center, it's a decent drive to the place. There is ample parking space.

There are no ticket counters and you can only buy tickets online, there was a technical issue while booking and i had to book twice and paid double and the amount was never refunded back. It is advised to book in advance so you are not stuck at the gate. Also if you plan to visit the panda house it is highly recommended to book in advance as the number of tickets for panda house are limited and you may not get the ticket on the spot.
The park ims nice and green with alot of place for families to sit and have some nice time.

There are alot of animals including the big cats like the lion and tiger but the space for the caged animals is really cramped, it might be that due to the heat during summer it may not be possible to keep a large area cold but I am sure there are ways where this can be managed either through bigger closed glass chambers or through some other solution but seeing such majestic animals cramped in a tiny space does not feel good.
The other parts of the park are nice and they have animal feeding activity too and it's fun for the kids especially the giraffes. The reptile section is also nice. The variety of birds is also good.
There are limited eating options available.
All up its a decent family outing option but they need to find a better option to accommodate the caged animals. Bundle the place with the panda house and book the tickets in advance.

Beautiful large park with enormous space for everyone to enjoy. Local people are very friendly and welcoming and Mondays is family day - this is the day you’ll find lots of families enjoying the city’s parks. This park is worth riding a bike around to enjoy the whole place. I walked around it and found all sorts of play areas, water features and snack stalls. Lots of public facilities as well. A nice place to exercise or relax - whatever takes your fancy
