The Qantab Playground and the Qantab Public Majlis are now open to village residents.



A playground aimed at turning out fit, healthy young people in both body and mind has been launched at Qantab village.

It is one of two projects set up as part of Muscat Bay’s corporate social responsibility to provide first-class recreational facilities.

The Qantab Playground and the Qantab Public Majlis are now open to village residents.

Both are for community use, with the playground aimed at improving the well-being and social lives of the younger generation while the majlis will be ideal for weddings, religious celebrations and council meetings.

The Deputy Governor of Muscat, H.E Sayyid Said Bin Ibrahim Al Busaidi, was guest of honour at the launch event last Monday.

Sheikh Hamood bin Sultan al Hosni, CEO of Muscat Bay, said: “As a core part of the wider Omani community, Muscat Bay has worked closely with Qantab village to develop strong and enduring links with the local neighbourhood.

“We are striving to make a positive difference through social initiatives, such as the Qantab Public Majlis and Qantab Playground to further develop a strong community feel for the people of Qantab.”

Ibraim al Akhzami, a Qantab representative, said: “The majlis and playground are a welcome addition to the village of Qantab.

“The majlis is located at the heart of our village and is the mecca of all social activity. The amazing football field provides our team with the necessary facilities to train and improve their skills.”
