Ahmed Mohammed Abdul Karim, Director of Public Parks and Horticulture Department, said the park, built at a cost of Dh20.8 million, is among the group of recreational parks being built in Dubai to provide entertainment, recreation and sports facilities for the residents of Al Nahda-2 area.

The park has recreational facilities, games for children, a jogging track, a bicycle track, a sports ground
and seats.

Covering 14 hectares, the park has a pond in the centre to collect groundwater and rainwater with two chambers, one for pumping in water and the other to drain it when the
need arises.

The pond has a pump to raise the water level and two pumps to operate
the fountains.

The design of the pond allows the water to flow out when the water level rises during rain, which will also prevent growth of bacteria.

The park has a range of recreational facilities such as children’s play areas for different ages, a 1.4km cycling track, a 1.35km jogging track and a 4,444-square-metre area for practising different sports.

It has the latest landscaping system. The design allows cultivation of date palm trees, ornamental trees, bushes, fences and flower plants and a lot of green spaces.

A metal fence has been installed around the pond for the safety of the children and to prevent their access to the water.
