Mushrif Park to open after Dh179 million renovation - in pictures

The product of an international team of contractors, architects, engineers, botanical consultants and the locally based developer Al Ain Properties, the 14-hectare park replaces the old, women-and-children-only park that was first built at the junction of Al Karamah (24th) and Mohammed bin Khalifa (15th) streets in 1982.

Walled, gated and entirely closed to men, the original Mushrif Park was a very different kind of space from the one that will greet visitors.
