The park has two entrances, one from Shahid Haghani highway, and another one from an alley beside park. This park has four fire towers, which make a flaming fire as high as 6 to 8 meters, and throw the water that comes out of it, with music.
The fire that comes out of these towers is very exciting, and this ceremony is performed every night after Maghreb and Isha. Horse training is also one of the facilities; it is only the first phase of the park. The next phases are in the project of developing the park.
They are going to make this park to the largest entertainment center in Iran. Skate Park in Abbas Abad, the biggest skate park in the Middle East, is near the intersection of Shahid Hemmat and Modarres highway.

The Abo o Atash park is a beautiful park that has recreational facilities, fire towers, areas for playing with water and an amphitheatre.
I was most inspired by the aesthetics of the park incorporating traditional Persian elements and themes with modern constructional features.
I have also combined Persian artistic designs with contemporary materials and building techniques in the interior and exterior of my structure.
My cultural centre also serves a similar purpose with an amphitheatre and water facilities for the visitors.
