According to GAM Parks and Anti-Desertification Department Director Zaid Al-Hadid, works in this phase cover an area of 82 dunums and include planting 5,700 forest trees, which are produced by the department.

He added that stone ramps have been placed to prevent soil erosion, in addition to paths and sidewalks, a water tank with a capacity of 50 cubic meters, and irrigation networks.

This step “comes in line with the vision and directives of His Majesty King Abdullah to increase the green cover in eastern Amman, to enhance efforts to combat desertification and preserve green vegetation, and to secure a natural outlet for citizens,” Shawarbeh said.

He stressed that the Greater Amman Municipality (GAM) will continue agricultural work that achieves environmental balance, keeping up the maintenance of parks, which serve as community outlets.
