Everything you need to know about Riyadh’s King Salman Park

Saudi Arabia will be home to the world’s largest urban park.

London has Hyde Park, New York has Central Park and Riyadh will have King Salman Park. Upon completion, the destination will be the world’s largest park. Located in Banban, Riyadh, the park is set to bring together arts, culture, entertainment and wellbeing, all on a record-breaking site.

King Salman Park aims to redefine the traditional concept of a park. In 2019, King Salman Bin Adulaziz Al Saud unveiled the plan, which is also named after him. Covering 13.3 square kilometres, the architecture firm Omrania is behind the design, which combines nature with modern features.

Located on the grounds of the capital’s old airport, the area will include links to the metro station, and an urban loop with a circular promenade for cycling, running and walking. Plus, there will be plenty of greenery and shade, as there will be an impressive one million trees.

The Visitor’s Pavilion is a gateway into the park, and it will be home to a cultural information centre. Designed in a Salmani architectural style, the features will also include a 360-degree terrace overlooking the park, exhibition spaces, meeting rooms, cafés and restaurants.
