The park’s main feature is a 70m long Boeing 747 that has been submerged to help preserve marine environment and its perpetuity.
The second major fixture is a replica of a traditional Bahraini pearl merchant’s house, which will be submerged next to the plane serving as a sustainable marine habitat and expected to be a major attraction for divers.
According to a press release cited by Zawya, Diyar Al Muharraq’s chief executive officer, Dr Maher Al Shaer, said the decision to take part in the national initiative “comes in line with our efforts to revive marine life in the kingdom”.
“We have worked closely with the Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority to design and build a replica of a traditional pearl merchant’s house, covering an area of 900m2 as part of the world class park to attract divers.”
