Had you wished of a long walk, where the fresh air blows on you, blue skies above you, nature around you and as you walk, you re-live every moment of the past with a smile.
A soon-to-open project will give residents and tourists an opportunity to get close to nature.
Set to open in January 2020 is a huge boardwalk on a mangroves area on Yas Island.
The breathtaking AED 5 billion Mangrove Walk Project will cover a land area of over one million sq.ft. in Mangrove National Park between Yas Island and Saadiyat Island.
Complementing the boardwalk is the host of activities available including kayaking, interactive educational workshop and play area for children’s.
But one of the highlights is the dedicated viewing terrace offering a stunning view of the surroundings.
A visitor centre will also be set up where guests can learn more about the importance of mangroves in the eco-system.
Abu Dhabi is rich in areas with mangroves, and authorities have implemented measures to protect these areas home to thousands of bird species and marine life.
The Mangrove Walk Project – a project by Modon Properties – is just one of the many new attractions in the pipeline in the emirate.
Abu Dhabi currently has a five-year Culture Sector Strategy in place under the behest of Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi (DCT Abu Dhabi).
Just some of the projects that will open soon in Abu Dhabi include the Zayed National Museum and Guggenheim Abu Dhabi on Saadiyat Island and Bait Mohammed Bin Khalifa House, Jebel Hafit Desert Park, Murabba’a Fort and Al Ain Museum in Al Ain.
The five strategic objectives of the Culture Sector Strategy are: preserve and sustain Abu Dhabi’s cultural heritage; increase awareness of, and engagement with, cultural heritage and the arts; Stimulate creativity as a driver for education and social change; Build and enable capacity in Abu Dhabi’s culture sector; and contribute to economic growth and diversification.
