A Mangrove Board Walk is set to open in Abu Dhabi
What’s next for residents in Abu Dhabi? The Mangrove Boardwalk, a new hotspot for you to discover with your friends and family, and this time, it’s nature friendly, too.
As the name suggests, the walk will overlook the natural setting of mangroves, and is located near Yas Island.
It is set to open in January 2020 – and it doesn't come cheap. The project is estimated to cost up to Dhs5 billion, and will also cover 1 million square feet of the area. Impressive!

Visitors will be able to take part in kayaking, participate in educational lessons, enjoy a play area for children, and chill on terraces where they can admire the stunning natural landscape and much more.
The project aims to convey the importance of Mangrove trees and how they are essential for the environment.
