The Jubail Mangrove Park is all set to open tomorrow 01st October for residents to visit once again.
There is just something about the mangroves that is calming and serene and Jubail Island is just this escape. The new Jubail Mangrove Park is set to open on October 1st with trained guides and experts on ground to take visitors on a physical and historical experience at the site. You get a glimpse into the story of Abu Dhabi’s mangroves and the kind of flora and fauna they attract.
In addition to the tours, there are several activities from kayaking to the chance to plant your own Mangrove tree. There is also going to be a long boardwalk that you can walk across during a beautiful moon lit night. The boardwalk can be accessed by no more than 15 people at a time to ensure the safety of the visitors. The Company’s COO Richard Russell said: “This has been a difficult time for our community, our families, and our world. Jubail Mangrove Park is thrilled to be able to reopen to the public with the hope it will provide a unique opportunity to connect with some of the UAE capital’s iconic natural heritage.
If there is one thing that has become common in most of our 2020, is a lot more time being spent out in the open like parks and gardens. The natural beauty around is precious and needs to be treasured. Sites like this are a great spot to visit to really relish the natural wonders and inculcate a sense of awareness among children from a young age.
Be sure to make your booking online should you want to meander through the mangroves and if you’re lucky you may be able to avail limited family discounts. Adults are charged AED 15 per person and children under 18 years are charged AED 10 with children under 7 years being able to go in for free. The park is open daily from 8 am to 7.30 pm and visitors will be stopped from entering at 6:00 pm.
