Sheikha Fatima Park, a first of its kind premium urban park in Abu Dhabi, is now open to visitors.
The newest leisure and entertainment destination will host activities and events with focus on well-being of the community members and promote active healthy lifestyle.
The park is split into three experiential areas: a discovery zone, an adventure zone and an experience zone.
There will be year-round calendar of wellness and fitness events, family-friendly interactive activations, a pet zone, and a retail space featuring boutique shops and food and beverage pop-ups.
The park is one of the first locations in the Capital with an 800sqm dedicated area for pets.
The Pet Zone will feature pet-themed adventures, including games and obstacle courses, and year-round activations.
Popularly known as ‘Khalidiyah Ladies Park’, the 46,000sqm plot has been redeveloped by Abu Dhabi-based IMKAN Properties into a vibrant community space.
“Sheikha Fatima Park is a reflection of our ability to think innovatively as we try to protect nature and promote community well-being in line with our vision to make meaningful contribution to the development of the local community,” Engineer Suwaidan Al Dhaheri, managing director, IMKAN, said.
