Brilliant new development announced for Abu Dhabi park

Sheikha Fatima Park will have food, shopping and adventure

One of Abu Dhabi's leading developers will transform one of the city's parks into a bustling hive of activity.

IMKAN has announced plans to convert the previously confined Khalidiya Ladies Park into a fun space for the whole family.

The revamped space, now called Sheikha Fatima Park, will include an adventure zone, places to eat, shops and relax, as well as an area for women and children only and interactive educational areas.

The property firm has teamed up with Abu Dhabi City Municipality to work on the project.

Work is already underway on the 46,000sq m area, with 350 parking spaces, which they say will be complete by the end of 2019.

Situated at the corner of Al Bateen Street and Zayed the First Street, it's hoped global brands will sign up to take space in the new park.

Walid El Hindi, CEO of IMKAN says: “We are proud of IMKAN’s partnership with Abu Dhabi Municipality to develop the city’s first-ever urban park.

“The government’s vision and insights are at the core of what we stand for and it is a great honour to be able to combine our ideas, take concepts from the drawing board and use them as a catalyst to transform inner-city communities.”
