Sun seekers heading to the beach this weekend should remember that Lagoon Beach and the Blue Walk on the Abu Dhabi Corniche will be closed until the end of March 2018 for redevelopment.
The closure starts near Gate One, across from 6th street near the Spinneys intersection. It extends towards the Hiltonia.
Abu Dhabi residents will be able to catch a movie under the stars or cool off at a water park at the Corniche next spring, according to new plans announced on Tuesday by the Department of Urban Planning and Municipalities.
The Abu Dhabi Corniche Master Plan has been approved by Abu Dhabi Municipality and further details of its first stage, at Lagoon Beach and Blue Walk, were released on Tuesday.
After its completion in March 2018, this section will have a theatre, new water sports facilities, an outdoor sports ground, playgrounds, a theatre, a henna area, new restaurants, kiosks and beach shops. For those on the go, there will be bike, boat and Segway rental facilities.
