SHARJAH, January 3, 2022

The Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) has announced the development of the newest pro skatepark at its upcoming beach destination, Al Hira Beach in the northern emirate.
Scheduled for completion in Q1, along with the opening of Al Hira Beach, the new attraction comes as part of a partnership between Shurooq and Dakota Schuetz, also known as “Kota”, 4-time world scooter rider champion, who - for the first time in the UAE - will be bringing his professional and inspiring design concept of the perfect pro skatepark that is accessible for all types of skaters, extreme-sports enthusiasts and children of all ages.
The AED87 million ($23.6 million) beach destination Al Hira Beach will include children’s playgrounds, restaurants, cafes, and aims to encourage social interaction and offer parents and children safe and world-class amenities to enhance their wellbeing. 
Officially named as Kota Skatepark, the attraction will feature different ramps for all levels and different roller sports which include skateboarding, roller skating, scootering and bicycle motocross. 
The skatepark will also feature a special pump track around the outside of the skatepark as a dedicated section for kids under complete safety regulations and measures.
Shurooq Director of Operations Khalid Ibrahim Al Qaseer said: "With the new Kota Skatepark attraction under development, Al Hira Beach is set to become one of the most popular beach destinations in the UAE for visitors and tourists, offering a complete new set of unique beach tourism experiences that contribute to reinforcing Sharjah as a focal destination for investments in the region."
"The new partnership translates our mission and vision to create strategic joint-ventures with global experts to introduce creative and unique services and experiences to visitors and tourists of all ages across all our destinations, especially in light of the recent extension of the weekend in Sharjah, which will play a key role in growing the demand for unique tourism and entertainment experiences across the emirate," he added.
On the new venture, Schuetz said: "I am truly excited to collaborate with Shurooq on the Kota Skatepark project in Al Hira Beach in Sharjah which will allow people to be active and have fun in a safe environment."
"We look forward to welcoming visitors and all riders in the UAE to experience the unique design of the skatepark, in addition to the pump track around the outside of the new park, which will be made for kids to race around and have an enjoyable experience," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
