Dubai Municipality (DM) has planned 56 landscaping projects for 2007.

The projects are part of the DM's desire to increase Dubai's total green area from 3.7% to 8% by 2020.

Dubais green land is spread over 22.36km² and includes 67 parks, beaches and community areas.

Mohammed Hassan Al Fardan, head of Promotion and Recreation Office, Public Parks and Horticultural Department, DM said: “To date all our green projects have used locally produced plants and flowers, but with the sophistication of the sector and our ambitious plans, there is need for more advanced technology and a greater variety of plant and flower species.” The projects planned include five new parks, seven community areas, 13 children’s play areas, 15 city beautification drives and four new nurseries.  Two parks in Al Warqa are estimated to cost US$ 12.8 million (AED 47 million).
