People living in Al Shamkha and Al Adleh will soon be able to enjoy five public parks that are being built by the municipality.
The first, at Al Shamkha, which cost Dh5 million to build, is expected to open this month.
Four others at Al Adleh, which cost about Dh29 million in total, are scheduled to be completed this year.
Musabah Al Murar, acting general manager of Abu Dhabi City Municipality, said: “The landscape of recreational facilities and parks is always on the rise to keep pace with the development seen in Abu Dhabi.”
Mr Al Murar said the parks would have recreational facilities, including multipurpose playgrounds, football pitches and play areas for children. They will also provide picnic areas and barbecue yards.
He said the parks had been designed to ensure the efficient use of water and with systems that cut energy consumption.
Indigenous plant species will further decrease the use of water.
“These parks will be an appropriate destination for families thanks to the security, safety and health measures in place, in addition to the clean environment and multiple services that provide comfort to park goers and Shamkha residents,” he said.
