The Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT) has revealed plans to redevelop the Al Bateen Ladies Beach with ‘world-class public amenities’ to enhance its appeal as a leisure and adventure destination for residents and visitors.
In a statement, DMT said that the project aligns with its vision of increasing recreational facilities and improve the quality of life in the emirate. Additionally, it aligns with the municipality’s ongoing efforts to further improve the city’s infrastructure in a manner that contributes to leisure, social engagement, and the community’s growth by providing integrated recreational facilities and high-quality services.
The redevelopment of Al Bateen Ladies Beach will cover more than 36,580sqm and will feature a restaurant, cafes, a prayer room and a convenience store. During the redevelopment project, Al Bateen Ladies Beach will be temporarily closed from 4 July until its completion in the second quarter of 2023, the statement said.
The project will also include a 500-metre exercise loop/jogging track, an outdoor/indoor gym, a paddle court, a volleyball court and a swimming pool, showers facilities and changing rooms to provide resident ladies and tourists with unrivaled beach experiences in complete privacy. It will also include a child-friendly park facilities with slides, trampolines, and swing ropes adhering to the highest standards in safety and quality, the statement added.
HE Dr Salem Khalfan Al Kaabi, Acting Director General of Operational Affairs in DMT, said: “The project aims to develop the beach to become one of the best destinations in Abu Dhabi City for ladies, which offers them leisure activities with more privacy. The Al Bateen Ladies Beach will include amenities that will add to the beach experience for all residents and visitors. We are confident that the Al Bateen Ladies Beach will become popular with Abu Dhabi residents and visitors. We want the women of Abu Dhabi to access world-class facilities at the beach while having access to privacy.”
He concluded, “As our community grows, we will continue developing exciting recreation opportunities to support an outstanding quality of life in Abu Dhabi for years to come.”
In March 2022, Abu Dhabi Maritime broke ground on several new marina and ferry station developments across the city, while in June, Omnix and Abu Dhabi Municipality collaborated to push a mandate relating to infrastructure projects. In July, Abu Dhabi launched a $2.72bn drive to expand its manufacturing sector to over $46bn.
