The Ghafé name came to us naturally, in line with the parks mission statement of “fostering learning through play”. Our goal is to raise awareness on the UAE’s beloved national tree, the ghaf
The ghaf, which goes by its scientific name prosopis cineraria, also known as shami or khejri, was declared as the national tree in 2008 – due to its cultural, historical, and environmental significance. The ghaf tree tolerates harsh conditions and makes the land hospitable for those around it. There is a saying that goes thus: “Death will not visit a man, even at the time of a famine, if he has a ghaf, a goat and a camel, since the three together will sustain a man even under the most trying conditions"
