‘It comes as a complement to the policy of expanding green areas and in order to distribute them and provide entertainment services in a balanced manner to all areas of the emirate. The contracts have been awarded and the projects are currently in the preparation stage,” Lootah said.

Lootah said the civic body has been striving to provide all the requirements of social and family life in the city of Dubai. “We are serious about moving forward according to the expectations of the world, in line with the directives of our wise leadership.”
