Jubail Mangrove Park, which re-opened after the summer months in September, will host an open day on Friday, 29th October, with lots of family-friendly activities which will also be available throughout the winter period.
New for 2021, Jubail Mangrove Park is calling little explorers across the UAE to join the trained rangers in learning about the importance of the natural eco-system with Jubail Mangrove Park's ‘Become a Little Ranger’ experience, available daily for those aged between 6-13 years old.
The park’s specially trained rangers have resumed their educational tours, which focus on the historical significance of the mangroves, as well as wildlife native to Abu Dhabi that can be spotted within the natural habitat and crystal waters.
You can also enjoy a walk through the 2.3 km boardwalk to see a variety of terrestrial and aquatic flora and fauna, practice yoga or soundbites healing, as well as make the most of the park’s famous kayaking experiences.
Available at sunrise, sunset as well as at night and full moon, the kayaking experiences offers guests the opportunity to see the park from a completely new perspective. Jubail’s new kayak store is now open where you can shop for your own kayaking gear including SUP, and Paddle board.
Available during the open day on the 29th October, you'll have the chance to learn more about the mangrove forest with new activities including mangrove seeding and JMP’s ‘clean, conserve and protect mangroves’ workshop.
Jubail Mangrove Park open day will open from 7am to 11pm (last entry at 10pm) and will be complete with food trucks, art workshops and yoga programs. A reservation to access the park is recommended, and guests are encouraged to visit the park during the high-tide for optimum viewing.
