Recently, the 11km Boardwalk at Palm Jumeirah was officially opened to the public, according to a report in Gulf News. The Dhs150-million project by Nakheel reportedly stretches along the crescent, facing resorts, such as the Atlantis.
Ali Rashid Lootah, chairman of Nakheel, opened the Boardwalk, and said that the new destination is one of a series of new projects under way on the island.
He was quoted saying, “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.”
Reportedly, the Boardwalk, which is accessible through 37 gates, will offer a variety of food trucks, cafés and kiosks along the crescent.
Lootah added, “There is a capacity for 30 food trucks — so far, five have been commissioned, five are in the pipeline and the rest will be brought in before the end of the year.”
Plus, around 350 parking spaces along the Boardwalk are also available for visitors, free of charge.
