A new underground car park should help ease parking woes in the capital.

Parking will hopefully get at least a little bit easier as of today in the capital, because a new underground three-storey car park in Al Dana has just opened.

Featuring more than 700 parking spots, the new facility is located on the corner of Al Falah Street and Fatima bint Mubarak Street, right next to the Ministry of Finance:


The structure, which cost Dhs120 million to build, can accommodate up to 726 vehicles.

In addition to regular parking bays, there are also female-only parking spots as well as four spots dedicated to hybrid and electric cars.

There’s even a family park outside (as in of the greenery variety), with a dedicated children’s play area.

Expect parking fees to be in line with other Mawaqif monitored areas, with prices starting at Dhs2 an hour for standard parking (black and blue kerb) or Dhs3 for premium (white and blue kerb).

The news of more eco-friendly parking spots in Abu Dhabi comes after it was announced last week that Yas Mall will be the first mall in the region to house an electric car charging station.

The car park at the mall will feature a BMW i Wallbox Pro, which can charge both electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles.


Pretty cool.
