RAKTDA to launch skatepark at Saqr Park


Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority (RAKTDA) is set to introduce a state-of-the-art skatepark at Saqr Park, its brandnew outdoor attraction located in the largest recreational park in Ras Al Khaimah.

The skatepark will inaugurate with a fun-filled family event, running from February 27-29. A free public event that’s open to all, skatepark at Saqr Park will come to life from 15:00 to 22:00 each day in an alfresco festival of food, shopping and skating action. Its official opening will be celebrated on February 28 with special performances from renowned international skateboarders – 15-year-old Isabelly Avila, her father Garcia Rodriguez and 13-year-old Virginia Fortes Aguas. They will also lead workshops where visitors will have the opportunity to skate with the pros and pick up key techniques, skills and tricks. There will also be games, entertainment, music and an array of delicious food options to choose from throughout the three-day event, as well as an outdoor market of goods from local artisans and retailers for those looking to do some shopping.

The new skating facility at Saqr Park is a key addition to what is the largest public recreational area in Ras Al Khaimah. Its opening aligns with RAKTDA’s mandate to cater to the array of interests of visitors to the Emirate as well as the local community.
