06 April, 2015
Dubai Municipality will commence work on a ‘Mini World Park’, designed to showcase replicas of famous monuments from all over the world, after it finalises its location, a senior government official told Emirates 24|7. “The park is on hold, but we are going to restart once we determine a location. There are alternative locations and we haven’t decided on it,” Abdulla Mohammed Rafia, Assistant Director General for Engineering and Planning Sector, Dubai Municipality, told this website in an exclusive interview. The park is the first of its kind in the Arab world and will display monuments such as Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab, New York’s Empire State Building, the Canton Tower in China, Toronto’s CN Tower, the Petronas Towers in Malaysia and the Swiss Re Tower in the City of London, according to an earlier report by Emirates News Agency (Wam).
