Playing and promoting sport is in line with the UAE's orientation, being one of the most important contributors to happiness in society. As a leading tourist destination in the UAE it is our mission to continue innovating the park and its various offerings, especially for young children and families; reinforcing our role as not only the biggest outdoor park of the region but also the best.”
