Construction of the park, with a total area of 1.55 hectares is progressing as scheduled, said Hussain Nasser Lootah, Acting Director-General of Dubai Municipality.

He said the park would meet requirements of the area's residents for recreational facilities. Palm trees are being planted to provide shade, and different types of shrubs and flowers will form a colourful ambience.

"Dubai Municipality is keen to provide all means of recreation to the public and spread greenery in the city," he said.

He added that the park includes several facilities and features such as playgrounds for children of various age groups, a main play area consisting of football, basketball, volleyball and tennis courts, a main plaza with shaded sitting areas, and a vast green area.

"In designing the park, we have taken into consideration requirements of the people of special needs," added Lootah.

The park would have a dedicated section for children in the age-groups of 2-5 and 6-12 years.

The park also has a fenced playground for adults and a 325-metre-long jogging track.

Dubai Municipality has recently undertaken a study aimed at enhancing design criterion of residential parks and community facilities in Dubai.

Residential parks are small parks that range in the area from one to two hectares and located in packed neighbourhoods while the community facilities are small games and resting areas with no greenery.

The study redefines the residential parks and analyses the actual needs of each neighbourhood for recreational and sports facilities.
