39 BBQ units to be added to Abu Dhabi's parks
The project was undertaken to stop park visitors from using green spaces for barbecuing.
Parks in Abu Dhabi will soon be a hotspot for BBQ lovers, as authorities are planning to install a total of 39 free grilling units.
Abu Dhabi Municipality has launched a project to install 15 barbecue units in the Dolphin Park at the Eastern Mangroves Corniche and 24 units in authorised parks along Abu Dhabi Corniche.
The project was undertaken to stop park visitors from using green spaces and sidewalks for barbecuing which damage agricultural assets.
The aim is to meet the needs of park visitors and provide a suitable recreational environment. At the same time, it contributes to maintaining parks, green spaces, trees and landscaped areas.
The units are expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2018.
So far, five experimental units have been installed in the Dolphin Park in areas earmarked for the purpose by the technical division of the City Municipal Centre.
Smoking shisha and barbequing are prohibited except in some parks; namely the Heritage Park, Formal Park, Family Park, and Nuzha Parks number 1/2/3/5 at the Arabian Gulf street.
These parks allow visitors to barbeque only in designated areas (stone and cement grills built as barbecue places), and not throughout the park.
The Municipality said it will continue its field visits, especially during public holidays, to educate the public about practices that harm the environment and community in general.
It urges them to contribute to the protection of gardens and green spaces to avoid incurring fines.
