Dubai Municipality has approved tenders worth US $9m for constructing a further four parks in the Emirate.

The parks are to be located in Al Muhaisinah 1, Abu Hail, Al Qusais 2, and Al Qarhoud. Hussain Nasser Lootah, acting director general of Dubai Municipality, said that the parks would add a further 6.37 hectares of greenery to Dubai, in line with the Strategic Plan for Dubai Municipality (2007-2011) which seeks to increase the per capita share of greenery to 23.4m2 and raise the total area of cultivated land to 3.15% of the total urban land by 2011.

The parks will include courts for football, basketball and tennis and dedicated play areas for children aged 2-5 and 6-12, with shaded areas for resting. Parks will also have jogging tracks.

Explaining the municipality's policy in building neighbourhood parks, Lootah said, "The needs of residents are identified based on the variety of populace as well as the type of residential units. This will help serve each neighbourhood with unique recreational facilities."

Work is scheduled to begin "very soon" and is expected to be completed within 10 months.
