Where the city meets the shade
Al Fay is an inclusive park that has something for everyone.
A park that can be explored all year round. A beautiful natural
retreat right in the heart of the city that can take you away
from the hustle and bustle of urban life.
Al Fay is the first of its kind in Abu Dhabi, designed using only plants, grasses and bushes that are native to the region. The designers used the landscaping and planting to maximize the potential of the site, by creating a micro-climate, that reduces traffic noise and temperature and sustains a forest-like environment. The downward slope from the road leads to the central park and funnels the cooler southern breeze down into the park while local grasses and bushes reduce sand infiltration and movement.
Over 2,000 plants, shrubs and grasses selected for their resiliency
Plants carefully selected to increase local biodiversity and ecosystems for the entire city area
By conditioning the soil and using modern irrigation systems the park uses 50% less water than a conventional park
Al Fay Park has a wide mix of local trees, shrubs and bushes, dense planting and a varied bird, insect and animal life, all designed to create a cool and sensuous ‘forest’ surrounding for the park’s many activities.
