The new Entertainment City project will be 2,650 million square meters, said Dr. Hasan Kamal a member of the Municipal Council of Kuwait, and the Chairman for the Capital Governorate Committee on Monday.
The Municipal Council had issued a decision in 2016 to extend Sheikh Zayed Park adjacent to current entertainment city, Dr. Kamal told KUNA in a statement. He explained that the previous decision for the new project required allocation of land for the Sheikh Zayed Park in another location where the park currently has more than 1,200 trees. The Sheikh Zayed Park is adjacent to the current entertainment city that belongs to the Public Authority of Agriculture Affairs and Fish Resources (PAAFR), which still has contracts to maintain the park, Dr. Kamal noted.
The Municipal council has accepted the decision of Council of Ministers for Amiri Diwan to take over instead Touristic Enterprises Company, he added. In addition, the Municipal is responsible for evaluating the final plan for the new Entertainment City that overlooks the ocean. Dr. Kamal pointed out that the Amiri Diwan will design the new Entertainment city through international companies, hoping this project will attract many people and it is vital to have in Kuwait. In 1984, the current Entertainment City was established in Al-Doha area and was considered one of major entertainment center in Kuwait.
