Izghawa is a district on the border between the two municipalities of Umm Salal and Al Rayyan and as a result it is part of two zones of Qatar, the west section is in zone 71 (Umm Salal) and east is in zone 51 (Al Rayyan). The district is predominantly a mixture of urban settlements, mainly in the Al Rayan portion and the rest is either undeveloped, farm land or part of Wadi Izghawa Al Gharbi (West Izghawa Valley), a valley. A beautifully landscaped and well-tended green space has been provided for residents by way of Izghawa Family Park, which also has a mosque, a children's play area, a volleyball court and a basketball court. The park is home to The Centre for the Empowerment and Care of Older Persons, which was initiated to provide services to over 60s within the community. Izghawa Metro Station is currently under construction, and will be part of Doha Metro's Green Line once complete.
The area is served by several bus routes and has good road links with the Doha expressway otherwise known as the Al Shamal Road (Q1) running along the eastern border of the district. There are both international school and local schools that serve the area for all ages and as usual there are supermarkets and plenty of shops and businesses for the needs of the local community. Izghawa is great for families and there are plenty of residential compounds with larger villas and facilities to rent, it is also possible to find apartments for rent in Izghawa too.
