Oxygen Park - Education City

 It is right behind the Student Center , Education City  at lower level .
 There are some tracks to run and inviting green field . I would not call it park in Hungary . A sport field rather . And where the name Oxygen comes from ? I think during the hot season  there is some condensed drops of cold water sprayed at the edge of the track . This way it feels cooler . Education city is a district of universities in Qatar - it has nice overall atmosphere but it needs clearly more trees .
