Heritage Forest Park In Ajman To Contain 5,000 Species Of Plants (23 August 2017)

 The Al Raqaib Heritage Forest Park in Ajman, with a total area of one million square feet, will contain 5,000 species of plants.

The Municipality and Planning Department in Ajman is currently working to complete the project, to launch the park as soon as possible.

Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Chairman of the Ajman Municipality and Planning Department, highlighted the necessity of completing the project to launch the Al Raqaib Heritage Forest Park before October, as the first of its kind in the emirate, which preserves local heritage and traditions.

While touring the site of the project, Sheikh Rashid stated that the park will reflect the emirate’s noble and deep-rooted heritage, showcase its natural scenery, and promote its valuable legacy to visitors, allowing them to enjoy the species of trees that are endemic to the Arabian desert environment.

He also noted that some of the most important species of plants that can be seen in the park include Prosopis, Leptadenia pyrotechnica, Salvadora persica, Ziziphus, and various species of palms. He explained that the Municipality and Planning Department desires to launch this important project to preserve valuable species of trees, which requires everyone to become involved in their preservation.

Sheikh Rashid pointed out that the late founding father, Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, planted the love of noble heritage in the children of the UAE, and he gave his considerable efforts to preserve desert tree species, as he considered them an integral part of the nation’s heritage.

"Caring about the environment is not a new thing, it is an ancient and deep-rooted duty that we have to undertake, which we have done for many years before the rest of the world began to care about the environment. It is our duty today to walk on the path of our founding father, the late Sheikh Zayed, and preserve all aspects of the nation’s heritage, as well as its natural legacy and its ancient customs and traditions. That is why we decided to launch the Al Raqaib Heritage Forest Park, a heritage park with natural desert trees and all aspects of our heritage and traditional life in one place," he added.
