The prominent government body has put youngsters in charge of the park's administration as an effort to encourage Kuwaiti youth to contribute towards national development plans, added the official, highlighting the safety of visitors as the administration's perennial concern.

Dishing out significant statistics, the official revealed that the park welcomed more than five million visitors from various age groups in the last four years, in addition to hosting more than 3,600 events running the gamut from sports spectacles to arts extravaganzas.

He spoke of a vision behind the park's inception, which aims to transform the facility into a bastion of Kuwaiti culture and the sports epicenter of the country, pointing out that the myriad of activities the park offers are family-friendly and cater towards children and youngsters alike.

The park has recently enlisted the services of special guides, all of whom take visitors on a comprehensive tour of the facility, offering them some of Kuwait's most significant historical tidbits and geographical information, he revealed.
