Sharjah Is Getting One Great Big Revamp And You’re Definitely Going To Want To Visit
Sharjah, our friendly neighbour, just up the road (and a nice drive if you can somehow avoid the traffic) is getting a revamp and giving you one more reason to visit.
Introducing: the Sharjah Waterfront Cycling and Jogging Path at Al Majaz Waterfront.
And you guessed it, it will be waterfront located and there will be plenty of space and marked paths for walking, jogging, running, sprinting, cycling or whatever takes your fancy.
This is just the beginning of a country wide project
Sharjah Urban Planning Council (SUPC) have just launched the project, and it’s the start of a multi-phase network of paths which will eventually stretch across the city of Sharjah and the UAE… jogging for everyone!
The project will also include cycling paths and is part of a city project to enhance the quality of life for residents and visitors.

“We are delighted to launch this new project which comes as part of the vision of Dr Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, to place the people’s wellbeing and quality of life at the top of the development agenda of the emirate.
“The cycling and jogging track project is considered one of the most fundamental developments found in advanced cities around the world as it embodies the essential concept of sustainability.
“It is also closely associated with the developmental drive in the economic, tourism and social sectors in addition to its positive impact on enhancing quality of life, ensuring healthy lives and promoting well-being for all segments of society.”
