Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates – May 2023: Following the success of The Galleria Al Maryah Island’s complimentary community programmes, the destination is excited to expand its community offering with its new “Get Active” initiative.
Get Active offers free fitness activities aimed at promoting healthy living and an active lifestyle amongst the Abu Dhabi community. The programme comes in time for the warmer summer months when residents and visitors are looking for indoor activities to beat the heat while staying active.
