DUBAI: Dubai-based developer Nakheel is building on the success of Al Ittihad Park at Palm Jumeirah by bringing new, indigenous recreation areas to its Jumeirah Village (JV) and Jumeirah Heights communities.
Hundreds of trees have been planted at Jumeirah Village Circle, where Nakheel is creating 13 parks covering 2.9 million sqft between them.
When complete, the parks will contain more than 6,000 palm and desert trees, two jogging tracks measuring around 840 metres and 720 metres, children’s play areas and shaded spots for relaxation. The first parks are due for completion in the next few weeks.
At Jumeirah Heights, part of Jumeirah Islands, design work is underway on a 737,000 sq ft waterfront recreational area that will include indoor and outdoor sports and fitness facilities, shops and restaurants, extensive communal space for relaxation and an 850 metre running track. There is also an adjacent island, reached by a bridge, providing further green, communal space for residents and visitors.
