Madar at Aljada welcomes 1 million visitors on its first year anniversary

09 March 2021

Arada has announced that Madar, the family entertainment complex at Aljada, has crossed the 1 million visitors mark since its official inauguration in February 2020 by HH Sheikh Dr Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah.

At the centre of Arada’s megaproject Aljada, Madar has established itself as one of the fastest growing destinations in the UAE, leveraging its world-class design by Zaha Hadid Architects, which features the Aljada Discovery Centre and a surrounding landscaped park that includes many facilities such as Playscape kids adventure playground, a skatepark, the Zad food district and an amphitheatre.

Ahmed Alkhoshaibi, CEO of Arada, said: “We are delighted with the success that Madar at Aljada has seen so far despite the challenging time the world has faced in the last year. Key to Madar’s growing success is the strong variety of offerings for families and young people alike in a safe and socially distant setting, including Zad, which has essentially became the most popular outdoor dining destination in Sharjah.”

“Madar has a unique entertainment programme that delivers experiences that cater to visitors’ preferences such as the drive-in cinema that screens exciting movies every night for free, in addition to Manbat, the vibrant weekend Emirati farmers market, which has received an overwhelming response from visitors looking to access fresh produce from farms directly.”
