Under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, Dubai Holding, the global investment holding company, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Dubai Municipality to develop the largest public park in Dubai.

Stretching across 1,430,000 sqm in DubaiLand, this park will act as a new destination for residents and tourists and provide a vibrant, natural environment, encouraging individuals to lead a healthy and active lifestyle. Through developing the park, Dubai Holding and Dubai Municipality aim to elevate the city’s fitness levels, as well as consolidate Dubai’s position as one of the happiest cities around the world.

The partnership between the two entities complements the UAE government’s vision of activating the relationship between the public and private sectors through joint ventures that will encourage investments in Dubai. As envisioned, the partnership will improve the community’s overall wellbeing as well as strengthen Dubai’s position as a global smart city.

Eng. Hussain Lootah, the Director General of Dubai Municipality, stated: “This park is in line with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to expand the emirate’s green spaces. The project will establish the longest public park in Dubai, and will meet the highest levels of sustainability while raising environmental awareness among its visitors.

I also want to take this opportunity to commend the continued cooperation between Dubai’s public sector entities and local developers, which together enhance further Dubai’s global reputation as premier destination to live, work, or visit through projects such as these.”

He highlighted further that Dubai Municipality is committed to establishing additional public parks throughout the emirate in the future, and will continue promoting active lifestyles and environmental stewardship. More info
