Phase I of the project is expected to be complete in March 2018 and will span an area of 78 thousand square meters comprising a host of recreational, service and commercial facilities. These include a water park offering a variety of activities and aqua sports facilities, and outdoor cinema, theatre, outdoor sports hall, open adventures and playgrounds, kiosks and restaurants, and retail outlets.

Other development works will include numerous services such as Henna design, lockers, boats and bike rental, Segway scooters, tourist kiosks, tours, and sports outlets selling sports accessories like ski boards and food supplements.

Upgrading the Corniche will also offer visitors a unique opportunity to practice a variety of recreational and sports activities in a venue boasting world-class standards.

The Abu Dhabi City Municipality has confirmed that the surrounding areas of the Corniche areas will not be affected by the improvement project and will remain open to welcome visitors as per its normal schedule from 07h00 to 00h00.
