Salam Park, Riyadh

Salam Park, Riyadh

Salam Park is a beautiful urban oasis nestled in the heart of Riyadh. Opened in 2003, it was designed as part of a wider initiative to increase green spaces and recreational areas in the rapidly growing city. Covering an area of 99 hectares, Salam Park provides a serene escape from the city's bustling pace.

The park is beautifully landscaped, with a variety of indigenous and exotic plant species, manicured lawns, and tree-lined pathways. The central feature of the park is a large artificial lake, around which visitors can take a relaxing stroll or enjoy a boat ride. The park also houses three smaller lakes and a series of water channels that add to its tranquil ambiance.

Salam Park offers several amenities designed for visitor enjoyment. These include playgrounds for children, picnic areas, fitness equipment, and a range of walking and cycling trails. In addition, the park hosts an amphitheater for events and a traditional Saudi house that offers insights into local heritage and culture.

Sustainable design is a key aspect of Salam Park, with measures such as a state-of-the-art irrigation system that recycles water, energy-efficient lighting, and the preservation of existing trees during the park's construction.
