Rob Dowling

We will be very sorry indeed to say goodbye to Robert Dowling at the end of January. After 13 amazing years in Hyde Park he has been enticed away to set up and run Al Bidda Park, an exciting project in Doha, Qatar.
His new park, the size of Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park combined, runs along the Corniche and has all the ingredients of the London Parks with interesting planting in varied landscaped areas, grass ( a tough creeping kind) for walking on, cafes, kiosks and playgrounds, in fact most of the things which the Qatari royal family have valued and enjoyed in London.
