King Salman Park, built on the site of a former military airfield, is the vision of the Saudi studio Omrania for the new “green heart” of Riyadh. The property is centrally located due to Riyadh’s fast urbanization, which makes it the perfect focal point for the Saudi capital’s revitalization plan.

The urban park will be a contemporary interpretation of the Arab landscape, open to the city, connecting different districts through a renewed mobility system integrated with the smart city’s elements.

As you step into the park, you’re greeted by lush landscapes, manicured gardens, and shaded pathways, creating a serene environment for relaxation and recreation.

The largest urban park, which spans more than 16 km2, is the world’s largest urban park, providing locals and tourists with many choices and excellent activities. In addition to the Royal Arts Complex, the National Theater, a 7.2 km pedestrian walkway (loop), and a “valley” region in the middle of the park surrounded by artwork and water elements, it would contain enormous open green spaces covering more than 11.6 km2 and one million trees.

Situated to the northeast of the city center, the park is expected to serve as the focal point of Riyadh’s National Capital Area, which includes the historic center of the city, the royal court, and the diplomatic district. Ten bus rapid transit stations and five new metro stations will serve the park, a sustainable development focused on public transportation.

The park will play a significant role in augmenting the region’s vegetation and elevating the percentage of per capita green spaces, directly and favorably influencing the climate and environmental quality. In addition, the park hosts culinary festivals, art exhibits, and cultural performances that highlight Saudi Arabia’s vibrant culture and rich history.
