YAS ACRES

Yas Acres is an ambitious masterplan development hosting some of the region’s most attractive landscapes and amenities. Within a limited time frame, ICON successfully detailed parks of different scale, a waterfront, golf club landscape, community centre landscape, swimming pools and water features.

The largest part of the design focus consists of parks including a city and district park, as well as neighborhood and pocket parks. The city park amenitites include a pump track for extreme bicycle activities, a football field, a skate park, an interactive water feature and playgrounds for children of varying age. Twenty pocket parks have playgrounds and outdoor fitness stations. Sustainable drainage was carefully considered and consists of swales in district and neighborhood parks that blend into the natural surroundings.
