A new initiative has been launched to redesign parks around Dubai in order to make the spaces more creative and natural for visitors.
The initiative is in partnership with Brand Dubai, the creative arm of the Government of Dubai Media Office and Dubai Municipality.
The project is aimed at increasing the quality of park visitor's lives and is in line with the Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan.
A comprehensive and conceptual framework and implementation plan will be formed for the parks and will also involve community members in the redesign process.
The project will enhance social engagement, promote sustainable environmental practices, encourage physical activity and create compelling spaces that will attract more visitors to the parks.
Dawoud Al Hajri, Director General of Dubai Municipality said, "Through the partnership with Brand Dubai, we will develop and implement new public park designs that promote a deeper harmony between urban facilities and nature. Aligned with the emirate’s 2040 Urban Master Plan, the joint project also supports Dubai Municipality’s goal of constantly enhancing its parks and community facilities to ensure they meet the requirements of visitors from all segments of society. It is also part of the Municipality’s keenness to promote the wellbeing of citizens, residents and visitors in the emirate and further elevate Dubai’s status as a leading global leisure and tourism destination. The redesign project will touch on various elements of the park including landscapes, playgrounds, exercise facilities and the architecture of built structures."
