Dubai Municipality Opens Solar Powered Al Khazan Park
(1 March 2015)

 

Dubai Municipality today opened Al Khazan Park, the first Dubai park to run completely on solar power, in the presence of Hussain Nasser Lootah, Director General of Dubai Municipality and Abdullah Al-Shibani, Secretary General of the Executive Council of Dubai and other officials.

It is part of an ongoing drive to make Dubai parks more environment-friendly and energy-efficient, said Mohammad Al Fardan, head of parks and recreation section, Dubai Municipality.

"The municipality is also opening new parks, including at least two this week, to increase green space and leisure options for residents," he added.

A new park is opening in Al Muhaisnah and Al Warqaa as part of the municipality's Plantation Week 35, which ends on Thursday.

The park does not use electricity from the main grid, relying instead on solar power for lighting and irrigation pumps.

Even the office and washrooms run on underground batteries charged by an on-site solar grid. Al Khazan Park, which first opened in 1980, is named after the 40-metre-tall water tank centred in its garden.
