Nakheel launches new leisure destination at Palm Jumeirah

DUBAI, November 21, 2016

Nakheel, one of the world’s leading developers, has announced the launch of Boardwalk, a 11-km-long pedestrian pathway designed to be a leisure and recreation destination for residents and tourists, at Palm Jumeirah in Dubai, UAE.

It was officially opened today (Monday) by Nakheel chairman Ali Rashid Lootah, marking the completion of yet another new attraction at the world-famous island.  

The Dh150-million ($41 million) Boardwalk has been created by building over the rocks of the island’s protective breakwater to produce a 6-m-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.

On the launch, Nakheel chairman Ali Rashid 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," remarked Lootah.

"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," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
