Al Majaz Park In Sharjah Set To Undergo Makeover

One of the most populated residential areas in Sharjah, Al Majaz, will soon witness a beautification project, it was announced on Tuesday. Marwan Jasem Al Sarkal, chief executive of Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq), told Gulf News that the park in Al Majaz was chosen to be developed since it is a populated area that is close to the city’s main attraction of Al Buhairah Corniche. "Shurooq will start its construction work on a project to develop Al Majaz Park, one of the emirate’s leading tourist attractions, after completion of the preparatory works," Al Sarkal said. Spread across an area of three square kilometres, Al Majaz Park is located between Jamal Abdul Nasser Street and the Khalid Lagoon Corniche, a vital residential and commercial district, and an important part of the city. "Once constriction work is completed, Al Majaz Park will be connected to Khalid Lagoon, which is a vital area in the emirate since it is located in the centre of the city." Al Majaz Park, which opened in 1990, has been landscaped with greenery and holds several concrete monuments, palm trees, a fountain and flowerbeds, along with a host of vital services required by visitors from both within and outside the emirate. The park is surrounded by a large wall with six main gates and eight side gates. Speculating closure The recent closure of Al Majaz Park had brought about discontentment from residents who were clueless as to why the park had been closed down. Most were worried that it might be shut down permanently. However, officials rebutted the claim that the park was being closed down, and explained that it will be open by November. "The project will be implemented in two phases, with work on phase 1 starting soon. "It is scheduled to be completed by November," he noted. "The park will be closed for the duration of the project as it needs to be linked directly to Khalid Lagoon, which will become the waterfront of the park. "The project will also involve the development of Corniche Street adjacent to the park. "As such, new detours will be set up in coordination with the Department of Public Works in Sharjah," he further explained. He pointed out that the project will transform the park into a distinguished family entertainment theme park that is set to draw visitors from across the country and the region. "The park will be designed based on the latest global parks and will provide new and safe games for children, as well as green spaces, landscapes, eye-catching views and special areas designated for walking, meetings and other services."
