Going Green in Dubai at Al Khazan Solar Park

The first solar powered and environmentally friendly park in Dubai was opened in 2015.

Located opposite City Walk, it's location means the solar panels receive sunlight, with no shadow throughout the year.

It operates 100% on solar energy.

This project is inline with Dubai's vision for 2010 to reduce energy consumption by 30%

The Park was built in 1980 and the water tower is a landmark in the area. 

Parking is on near by streets and can be reached by a short walk from a bus stop.

Children's play area.

Plenty of open space to picnic and some shady spots under the trees.

Solar panels, opposite City Walk.

  1. With all the sun there, solar does sound like the best option for power.

  2. That looks amazing :) Solar does seem like an excellent option for power there given the weather. Hope you're doing okay in the summer

  3. I think in a country that gets so much sunshine, something like this is an excellent idea. So glad they are using nature!

  4. What a great idea. Wish we had more things like this in the UK, although obviously we don't get as much sun as you #GoingGreenLinky
