He said the desert park is the “first of its kind in the country”. “It has been established as part of the police’s efforts to make its staff happy. It will give opportunities for families of the police staff and the general public to camp in the desert in a safe environment that offers the best facilities.
The park is equipped with a children’s play area, a cycling area, desert train, and separate majlis for men and women, designated grilling areas, food corners, a small zoo and football and volleyball courts.
