New parks coming to Dubai

Crocodiles, JLT and a Holy Qu’ran Park coming to Dubai

JLT Park
The up-and-coming area’s once grim-looking central lake will be transformed into a park covering 55,000 square metres, due to be completed by the end of 2013. As well as a pedestrian bridge linking the north and south areas, the green space will house fitness equipment, a small amphitheatre and kids’ play areas.

Crocodile Park
Featuring more than 200 freshwater and saltwater crocs, this 20,000 square metre park will be situated near Mushrif Reserve and the city’s new zoo Safari Dubai. Due to be completed by November 2014, the park will invite visitors to learn more about the species.

Holy Qu’ran Park
Dubai Municipality’s religious-themed park is due to open in September 2014, and will feature 54 different plants mentioned in the Qu’ran, as well as an outdoor theatre, fountains, a desert garden and running and cycling tracks.
