Al-Urubah Park: all about the latest Green Riyadh project

The park will sprawl across an area of 754,000 square meters…

Construction has now begun on one of the largest parks in the city of Riyadh, Al-Urubah Park, under the Green Riyadh project. And Riyadh’s about to get a whole lot greener.

Located at the intersection of Prince Turki Bin Abdulaziz Al-Awwal Road and Al Urubah Road, the park is easily accessible from various parts of the city.

The park’s unique design was adopted from several designs submitted by six international contestants who participated in the competition to present the best ideas and designs to achieve sustainability and conform to environmental standards

The park features a panoramic path that is three kilometres long and 12 meters high, providing a view of the city’s landmarks. The design will also utilize modern technologies and aims to give visitors an interactive experience using augmented reality.

Al-Urubah Park will also feature a 14-kilometer walking trail, green terraces, open spaces, and theatres for events and festivals. You can also look forward to booking sports facilities that cater to various age groups.

Green Riyadh is one of the capital’s four mega-projects. Launched by King Salman in 2019, under the supervision of the Committee of Grand Projects chaired by Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman, the four mega-ventures to be built in Riyadh are worth an estimated $23 billion.

The projects—King Salman Park, Sports Boulevard, Green Riyadh, and Riyadh Art—are designed to “significantly improve the lives of the city’s citizens” and transform Riyadh into an attractive global destination.

The “Green Riyadh” program contributes significantly to achieving one of the goals of the Saudi Green Initiative and the goals of Saudi Vision 2030, which is to plant 10 billion trees within the Kingdom.
