New development, new attraction, new adventure, has been added in Hatta. Where it only used to be Hatta Dam, now the vast lake formed by Hatta Dam and its surrounding mountains has been transformed to attract the residents of UAE, apart from the tourists who come to enjoy the kayaking. And on the way to kayaking, the 80×30 metre artwork on Hatta Dam portrays the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and the late Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, which make tourists to pull over and have a close look to this beautiful piece of art. Alwadi park is yet another place where people go to enjoy their off day with families and friends.
