With temperatures in the UAE getting cooler, explorers can enjoy a stroll down the sprawling boardwalk that runs through the majestic mangroves at Jubail Mangrove Park (JMP), and discover all the activities that the park has on offer throughout the season with its open day event to be held on Friday, October 29.
Jubail Mangrove Park, which reopened after the summer months in September, will be welcoming guests for its open day with an array of family-friendly activities which will be available throughout the winter period, making Jubail Mangrove Park the perfect day out for family and friends.
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 lush natural habitat and crystal waters.
