Six metre wide promenade has been created to establish a new destination for fitness, leisure and socialising
The 11km Boardwalk at Palm Jumeirah in Dubai was officially opened on Monday by Nakheel chairman Ali Rashid Lootah, marking the completion of another new attraction at the world-famous island.
The AED150 million Boardwalk was created by building out over the rocks of the island’s protective breakwater to produce a six metre wide promenade – and a new destination for fitness, leisure and socialising.
Accessible from 14 points along the crescent and on the doorstep of the island’s growing number of hotels and resorts, The Boardwalk boasts a wide variety of food trucks, some of which are already open for business, Nakheel said in a statement.
Lootah said: “The Boardwalk is another shining example of how we use creative thinking and innovative engineering to bring more facilities and attractions to Palm Jumeirah.
“This unique destination is one of a series of new projects under way on the island as part of our ongoing commitment to further enhance this world-famous landmark.
“It’s already proving a popular spot for jogging, walking and sightseeing among both residents and tourists, with many more visitors expected as Dubai’s peak tourist season gets under way.”
