The Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT) will open 21 parks in Khalifa City, aimed at enhancing liveability and promoting healthier lifestyles among community members. The parks will be open to the public ahead of Eid Al Fitr.

Designed with careful consideration of the various needs and preferences of residents, the parks offer diverse recreational experiences, including amenities such as play areas, seating and gathering spaces, barbecue areas, sports facilities, and off-leash dog areas.

Outdoor Activities

Visitors can enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities from multi-use games areas (MUGA) to padel, volleyball, badminton, cricket, and parkour.

Sports enthusiasts can also take advantage of full and semi-basketball courts and a mid-size football pitch.

Furthermore, with a focus on inclusivity, two parks incorporate People of Determination play areas, ensuring that all members of the community can participate in outdoor recreation.

His Excellency Hamad Al Mutawa, Executive Director of the Planning and Infrastructure Sector at DMT, said: "The opening of these 21 parks is integral to DMT's broader initiative aimed at enhancing liveability across the emirate of Abu Dhabi. These parks have been thoughtfully developed to cater to the specific needs of each neighbourhood, offering residents and visitors opportunities to connect with nature, socialise, and engage in various outdoor activities that promote wellbeing. By providing sports and play facilities within an ecologically sustainable environment, these parks contribute to fostering vibrant and healthy communities."

150 New Parks in 2024


With a total of 150 new parks slated for opening in 2024, in addition to the refurbishment of several existing parks, the park development initiative underscores DMT’s commitment to its Liveability Strategy, fostering holistic wellbeing and creating complete and liveable communities across the emirate that improve residents' quality of life, promote social cohesion, and ensure environmental sustainability.
