IMKAN Properties has officially opened the first of its kind premium urban park in the Capital. Nestled within Khalidiya District along Al Bateen Street, Sheikha Fatima Park is just minutes away from the famous Corniche in the heart of Abu Dhabi
Historically known as ‘Khalidiyah Ladies Park’, the 46,000m2 plot has been redeveloped into a vibrant space re-imagined for the community. Retaining its legacy, and a tribute to the mother of the nation, Sheikha Fatima Park will be a place of permanent discovery where families come together to explore the different environments within the park and engage in an active healthy lifestyle.
Highlighting IMKAN’s priorities, Engineer Suwaidan Al Dhaheri, Managing Director of IMKAN, said: “At IMKAN, our primary aim is to enrich the lives of city dwellers by providing creatively-designed spaces, which also enhance the surrounding environment. Sheikha Fatima Park is a reflection of our ability to think innovatively as we try to protect nature and promote community well-being in line with our vision to make meaningful contribution to the development of the local community.”
Al Dhaheri reiterated IMKAN’s commitment to actively supporting the UAE’s public and private sectors through supporting home-grown brands that embrace the finest local concepts. In implementing special projects such as Sheikha Fatima Park, which has created a model for an ideal public-private partnership, we continually seek to exceed the aspiration of the local population.
“IMKAN’s creative vision has helped it promote entrepreneurship, adopt new business concepts and implement unique ideas and facilities that best serve societal needs and promote sustainable living in Abu Dhabi,” he added.
Sheikha Fatima Park is split into three experiential areas — A Discovery Zone, an Adventure Zone and an Experience Zone. Activities within the park will center around the wellbeing of the community with a year-round calendar of wellness and fitness events, family-friendly interactive activations, a pet zone, and a retail space featuring boutique shops and food and beverage pop-ups.
