The project’s cost is estimated at Dh26 million. “Holy Quran Park is one of the prestigious projects of the civic body. Not only the UAE, but the entire tourist world is waiting to visit the park.”

    He said the project was announced on the occasion of celebrating the 1000th meeting of the technical committee of the DM. “The first stage of levelling was done using the construction waste and other reusable waste materials which saved Dh12 million.

    “The park, located in Al Khawaneej area, has been specially designed in the Islamic perspective to introduce the miracles of Quran through a variety of surprises for the visitors,” he said.
