construction of a crocodile park in the emirate.
Due for completion within 14 months, the project will resemble those found in France with a habitat that is as natural as possible. The reptiles will be grouped in order to reproduce as they would in their natural environment.
As Obaid Ebrahim Al Marzouqi, head of administrative services, Dubai Municipality, explained, in addition to the entertainment aspect, the park will grant educational institutions and research centres the opportunity to carry out excursions.
Spanning 20,000m2, the destination will be located 10km from Dubai International and is expected to appeal to children, families and tourists.
