Al Ain Municipality and Musanda start parks and recreation project
$2.7-million development will see the construction of seven parks and three sand playgrounds by October 2019
Al Ain Municipality has partnered with Abu Dhabi General Services Co (Musanda) to construct seven parks and three sand playgrounds for children as part of its plans to expand services offered to UAE nationals and residents.
The project, which is worth $2.7m (AED10m) and due to complete in October 2019, will take place across four Al Ain regions – Sweihan, Nahel, Al Shwaib and Al Faqa – and will span 1.21ha.
Musanada said the project would involve the construction of fully fenced-in and shaded play parks for children.
The development has created job opportunities for more than 47 workers, engineers, and consultants, according to UAE state news agency, Wam.
Prior to approval, municipality officials said they had considered health and safety measures according to international standards, such as thickness of playground surfaces and fall height of park components.
