DSOA Opens “North Park”, a New Community Park
In efforts to constantly enhance the residents experience at DSO
Dubai-UAE: 23 September 2018 – Dubai Silicon Oasis Authority (DSOA), the regulatory body for Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO), the integrated free zone technology park, has opened North Park, a new public park situated near Cedre Villas project to enhance the overall resident experience and foster community spirit.
The opening of the park aligns with desirable society strategy pillar that is one of DSOA’s 2021 Strategy that is built on four pillars – a smart city, an advanced technology hub, happiest people, and a desirable society.
Complementing DSO’s popular Lake Park that boasts a 2.2 km jogging path, and DSO’s Central Park that spans 9,129 square meters, the 35,000 square meters North Park, set amid a lush landscape, offers a diverse mix of amenities including water fountains, a kids’ play area with a separate section for toddlers, sports facilities, food and beverage options, and a parking lot for 91 cars. Designed with strollers and wheelchairs in mind, the walking paths feature smooth, even surfaces to maximize convenience.
Sports and leisure:
Sports enthusiasts can now work out in the outdoor gym equipped with state-of-the-art fitness stations or use the 500 m jogging and cycling track. Other facilities include a 90 m X 45 m football pitch, a tennis court, a volleyball court, a skate park and a multipurpose court, in addition to a 5,000 square meters lawn area.
Food and entertainment:
The park’s fitted barbecue stations provide the perfect setting for a birthday celebration or a family gathering for residents of DSO and neighboring areas.
The playground comprises a sandpit with beach sand and a dedicated area for toddlers, tailored to their age requirements.
Smart benches and lighting systems:
North Park benefits from smart services that DSOA incorporated at its hi-tech park in line with its focus on public safety and security. The park includes smart benches, a 100% solar powered bench that include many features from cooling system to advanced smart phones charging and data gathering. While the park also features smart lighting systems, that operate through motion sensors resulting in the reduction of carbon emissions.
North Park is open from 8am to 11pm Sunday to Thursday, and from 8am to 11:30pm on weekends and during public holidays. While North Park comes as an addition to DSO’s other developments that aim to make residents happier in their communities, the existing Central Park at DSO includes a lawn, a children’s play area, and a basketball court – all adjacent to one another and surrounded by an all-weather running track with a rubberized surface like that used in track and field athletics. The play area comprises a set of swings, a slide, a jungle gym, and a play house.
