Al Fay Park opens on Abu Dhabi’s Reem Island

 

ABU DHABI – The new Al Fay Park has opened to the public on Reem Island as part of the UAE capital’s ongoing efforts to promote healthy living.

The park was inaugurated on Wednesday (January 20) by Sheikh Khaled bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Member of the Executive Council and Chairman of Executive Office.

The 27,500 square metre park is the first urban park focusing on bio-diversity in the emirate.

It features 2,000 local flora, including the national tree, the Ghaf, landscaped to sustain a forest-like ecosystem.

The park’s high density of trees, plus modern irrigation systems, ensures it uses 40 percent less water than traditional gardens.

The park features world-class facilities for multiple sports and activities and children’s playgrounds made of natural elements, providing a sustainable and natural space for residents and visitors in Abu Dhabi. ICA/Expat Media
