Fujairah Football Club Has New Car Park, Shops and Elephants

For months the Fujairah Football Club has been undergoing renovations both within the main grandstand building and in the car park within the establishment.

About a dozen shops have been created using both the land that fronts onto the road as well as the land down the southern side.

This looks like it will be a good money spinner for the club once the shops have been let and are doing business.

The road outside the football club has gone through a major overhaul with an elaborate speed hump, reddish paving stones all around, new date palms and other trees.

An extensive car park has been created, paved and painted on the south side of the club next to the hotel.

Near the road in this new car park a fountain has been established with a dozen elephants, some of which will dedicate their trunks to spouting forth the water.

Many people have remarked on the elephants wondering what they have to do with Arabia and thinking whether a display of camels might have been more appropriate to the local culture.

This fountain should be a sight to see once the water is flowing and the electricity is connected to light up the frollicking elephants at night.
