Pond Park to come up at Al Ghusais, Dubai

As part of the Dubai Municipality's plans to provide more greenery and recreational facility to its residents, a new and modern generation park, the POND PARK is likely to be constructed in the Al Ghusais area.

Work on the project is likely to begin soon as the civic body has already given its approval for the design of the park. The project is expected to be complete by March next year as per the Head of Projects and Designs, Mr. Mohammed Hassan Al Ali, who also mentioned that the project would be part of Dubai Municipality’s Strategic Plan for 2007-2011.

He also stated that more such Pond parks are planned in various areas of the emirates including Al Quoz, Al Nahda and Al Barsha. The current project at Al Ghusais will be spread over an area of 17 hectares with three segments. The first segment of the Pond park will contain a Jogging area of 3metres width and 2 kms in length surrounding the pond. The pond will also be surrounded by games and other facilities with shaded sitting areas. To ensure safety of children and visitors the pond is likely to be fenced.

The second segment of the design will have the main park area that consists of separate play areas for children with walkways and shaded sitting areas. It will also have a 3 metre slope which gives a panoramic view of the pond and will also be an ideal location for picnics or for conducting special functions.

The third and final segment of the project design includes football field, a couple of tennis courts, a basket ball court and a beach volley ball play area.
