Kuwait approves new Entertainment City


Kuwait Municipal Council has approved the construction and development of Entertainment City, a major leisure and amusement project in Kuwait.

According to state news agency Kuna, Entertainment City will become a major tourist attraction. It will cover an area of more than 2,650 million square metres.

The Municipal Council has accepted the decision of Council of Ministers for Amiri Diwan to take over the project, instead of Touristic Enterprises Company.

Amiri Diwan will design the attraction using international companies. The Municipal Council is responsible for evaluating the final plan for the new Entertainment City.

Entertainment City will be more than 2,650m sqm

The current Entertainment City was established in 1984 in the Al-Doha area. It’s hoped the new project will attract tourists and enhance Kuwait’s offering.

In 2016, the Municipal Council issued a decision to extend Sheikh Zayed Park, which is adjacent to the current Entertainment City.

The previous decision regarding the new project required allocation of land for the Sheikh Zayed Park in another location where the park has more than 1,200 trees.

Sheikh Zayed Park belongs to the Public Authority of Agriculture Affairs and Fish Resources (PAAAFR), which still has contracts to maintain the park.

Elsewhere, Miral has announced major progress in the development of Yas Bay, a new waterfront destination on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi.

Miral has invested AED 4 billion in the AED 12 billion Yas Bay project, which is made up of the Waterfront, Residences at Yas Bay, and twofour54.
