Bahrain Mumtalakat Holding Company’s real estate arm Bahrain Real Estate Investment Company (Edamah) and Amanat Edu-Safe Park have begun the construction of a new Education Park in Isa Town.
The first-of-its-kind facility provides a one-stop solution for students and parents, extending the value of education beyond school hours. The facility includes a library, sports halls, and fields, offered in cooperation with one of the private schools in the area.
The project will also contain coffee shops, banks, pharmacies, business centres, and services geared to serve local schools, in response to a lack of retail and commercial offers in the area. Parents can also enjoy the Park’s facilities as they wait for their children.
According to the company statement, the Phase One of the Educational Park is expected to be completed in April 2022, and Phase Two in September 2022.
“The Educational Park will create a positive social and commercial impact in line with Edamah’s commitment to projects that add value to Bahraini society. This will be an important addition to the Isa Town Educational Area, which is very busy during the day but underutilized immediately after school and university hours. It will create a dynamic interaction point between all educational institutions in the neighborhood and improve the quality of extra-curricular learning available to students of all ages.”
Dr. Shaikha May bint Sulaiman Al Otaibi, Director General of Schools Affairs said, “This project was conceived and designed with the area’s needs in mind, following an extensive survey of hundreds of students and parents conducted by Edamah. Backed by our more than 30 years of experience in education, we are confident that the Educational Park will complement school learning, helping young people develop the skills they need to thrive in today’s rapidly changing world.”
“Parents, too, will benefit from dedicated learning programs, supported by Tamkeen, which will be offered on-site. In addition, there will be service centers for parents and students. Its close proximity to schools will save time on transportation and ensure parents and staff are in a safe space that is monitored by specialized Bahraini companies. The project will also create educational projects and job opportunities for Bahraini entrepreneurs,” Dr. Al Otaibi further added.
