Dubai Municipality says the park's wireless internet service will be available soon
Zabeel Park in Dubai will soon be offering free Wi-Fi to visitors as part of Dubai Municipality's efforts to boost services at public parks.
The news, which was broken by Arabic daily Al Khaleej, quoted the director of Public Parks and Horticulture at Dubai Municipality Ahmed Abdul Karim as saying that the move is the first of its kind undertaken and in line with the government's goal of building a modern country.
Dubai Municipality have put final touches to the Wi-Fi infrastructure, with Karim revealing that the free wireless internet service will be made available to the park's visitors 'soon'.
Zabeel Park, the first technology-based theme park in the Gulf, cost nearly AED 200 million to build and was opened to the public in November 2005.
Aside from a conventional garden park and jogging track, the park includes interactive displays grouped into three zones - alternative energy, communications and techno - as well as a space maze and 3D theatre. The edutainment centre Stargate, which is designed to resemble a spaceship, was opened to the public last year.
