Dubai Municipality has said that it has built 70 new parks and playgrounds in various residential areas of the emirate this year.

They were constructed under the directives of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

The total number of parks and playgrounds built by Dubai Municipality now stands at 185.

These include five major parks such as Mamzar Beach Park, Creek Park, Mushrif Park, Zabeel Park and Safa Park.

Also, five pond parks are located in Al Barsha, Al Quoz, Al Nahda, Al Qusais and Al Khawaneej.

“Developing parks and playgrounds in residential neighborhoods is part of the Municipality’s vision of building a happy and sustainable city, and its mission to plan, develop and manage an exceptional city that represents the essence of sustainable living,” said Dawoud Al Hajri, director-general of Dubai Municipality, reported news agency WAM.

“By building parks and playgrounds, we also seek to provide meeting places for children and residents of the neighborhood from all segments of society. We maintain a strong feedback loop with the community and welcome the recommendations of neighborhood residents.

“Dubai Municipality places a high priority on meeting the requirements of senior citizens, people of determination, children and various other segments of the society as part of achieving a comprehensive and integrated development of residential neighborhoods and playgrounds.”

In February, Sheikh Mohammed allocated Dhs500m to enhance the quality of life in the emirate’s residential areas.

At the time, the authorities said that they would receive feedback from citizens of residential areas who would determine what they would like for their neighbourhood including public facilities, playgrounds and parks.
