20-January-2021

Spectacular nature, multiple sports and activities, and playgrounds for children can be found in the park. 

HH Sheikh Khaled bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Member of the Executive Council and Chairman of Executive Office, has officially opened Al Fay Park on Reem Island as part of Abu Dhabi’s ongoing efforts to promote healthy living and build on the emirate’s status as a world-class place to live.

 

 

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.

Abu Dhabi media said on its Twitter feed that the park, implemented by the Department of Municipalities and Transport features 2,000 local trees planted to create a forest-like environment, and includes world-class facilities for multiple sports and activities, and playgrounds for children.

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

 

 

The park also 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.
