If you’re trying to picture just how big that is, think around the size of London’s Hyde Park spread across 350 acres
or three times the size of Dubai’s Zabeel Park.
This project will result in a 17 per cent increase in public space
in the Emirate.
What’s in it?
Full of green spaces, this park will feature 30km of pathways, 20km of jogging tracks, 14km of cycle tracks, 7km of nature trails and 45 sports grounds, making it the ideal spot to stay active.

Will it be sustainable?
That’s a big YES! The park will have 15,000 trees
by its completion. In addition, there will be on-site power generation as well as waste recycling and natural shading. The air’s quality is bound to improve in this area!
The park will also reduce water consumption by 5 litres per square metre, and so preserving the environment even more.
