Grand Opening: Hanging Gardens Unveiled in Sharjah

The UAE’s newest attraction, the Hanging Gardens in Kalba, boasts an impressive landscape featuring over 100,000 trees across 1.6 million square feet, rising 281 meters above sea level. Recently inaugurated by Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, the garden is situated along the Sharjah-Kalba Road.

During the opening ceremony on March 8, Dr. Sheikh Sultan explored the garden’s various sections, admiring its aesthetic elements including lush green spaces, terraced flowers, and cascading waterfalls. Attendees were treated to a delightful musical performance by school students as a gesture of appreciation.

Residents of Kalba expressed gratitude towards Dr. Sheikh Sultan for his support in initiating developmental projects in the area. The Ruler took commemorative photos with children and toured the central restaurant, offering seating for 215 people with a picturesque view of the gardens and waterfall.

The designated recreational areas for children feature age-appropriate zones, including mountain climbing routes of varying difficulty levels and a skating arena covering 24,000 square feet.

Visitors can also enjoy a train excursion, accommodating 55 people, which spans 820 meters with four stations strategically placed throughout the garden. An upper area restaurant, built with traditional wooden architecture, offers panoramic views at 270 meters above sea level.

With amenities like 262 parking spaces, facilities for disabled individuals, electric vehicle charging stations, restrooms, prayer rooms, and a cafeteria, the Hanging Gardens project aims to elevate Kalba’s economic, tourism, and cultural landscape.

Designed as a premier tourist destination, the Hanging Gardens provide ample opportunities for leisure, sports, and appreciation of natural beauty, contributing to the growth of tourism and economic activity in the region.
