Yarmouk Recycled Art Park

After months and months and months of wanting to go, we finally made it out to Yarmouk Recycled Art Park this morning.  I’d love to say that it was due to my motivation to get out and see all of the things we want to see before leaving Kuwait in June, but we actually were invited to a birthday party in the park which provided all the motivation we needed. {Friends, a cool park, and sunshine? Yes please.}

Either way, I’m so glad we finally ventured out to Yarmouk to check it out.  The weather was absolutely gorgeous, the company was fab, and being that it was a Friday morning, 5th Ring traffic was almost non-existent.  Not to mention the really cool art instalments made out of repurposed junk!

While I think the idea of creating a park full of recycled material art is pretty awesome to begin with, the fact that it’s happened in Kuwait {where, to my knowledge, recycling doesn’t really happen} is extra cool.

Grae and I had such a lovely time exploring the park and chatting about the different art pieces and what they were made of, and it was also just really nice to see something different and unique.

And besides all of the cool art, there were friends to play with, treats to be had, and all kinds of fun party things happening too.  Such a nice way to kick off the weekend.  We’ll definitely be back soon!

 

Kuwait friends, you can find the park here.

  1. Wow! I’m very impressed with those art pieces. Well done to whoever created them. I spent this morning looking at the annual “Sculptures By the Sea” (http://www.sculpturebythesea.com) that happens here … Well, as much as I could with a three year old (I try and get to the same beach every Saturday with a group of friends for an early morning swim and breakfast and have been since 2000 but it’s been few and far between since having a child) . Before having her I would spend 3 or 4 hours meandering through the sculptures … These sculptures certainly rate amongst the ones at Cottesloe Beach!!!

  2. I’m quite impressed! I wish I can take my children there too, because it is not enough just to speak about recycling, we should show them how to do it properly! And that’s the right place!

  3. I got to know about this park through your blog. We are planning a visit there in 2 weeks time. I was curious to know, if food is allowed inside the park (we wish to do some bbq). Please let me know.
