Abu Dhabi Municipality has unveiled its plans to transform Khalifa A City in Abu Dhabi into one of the cities most green and walkable areas.

The masterplan, which has been developed by KEO, sees the development of the area's landscape strategy to introduce 26 new neighbourhood parks, four new community parks, and a district park.

The project for Khalifa A City, which is located 25 km from Downtown Abu Dhabi, also plans for a tree-lined streetscape that will connect the disparate areas and create a pedestrian friendly walkway.

KEO was commissioned by Abu Dhabi to produce the master plan after conducting a study to enhance the amount of green space in the city.

"The study was initiated by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed who asked that the city include more services, and provide as many parks and walkable opportunities as possible for its citizens," a representative of the department said.

The government of Abu Dhabi says it expects to spend US$502.4 million on required infrastructure services and extensive landscaping in the first phases of the city's upgrades.
