"This initiative comes within the municipality's strategy to meet the community needs of services, recreational and sports activities that contribute to promoting the standard of living of the inhabitants, maintaining health and physical fitness,” said Acting Executive Director of Municipal Infrastructure and Assets Sector, Engineer Abdullah Al Shamsi, ''The Municipality of Abu Dhabi has begun the distribution of these equipment to the Public Park at Abu Dhabi Corniche and the Capital's Park during the initial stage of the project,” he added. Shamsi hoped that all age groups would benefit from this development.
