A very quiet place with historical surroundings. If the weather is nice, then it is great place to spend the afternoon. You can bring your own snacks and hang around for a couple of hours.

Along side an old river bed there are various cordoned off locations where families or group of friends can sit and spend time together. We had barbecue over there.

I begun to love Riyadh when I came here. Since it is inside the Diplomatic Quarters (which is a neutral ground for all the citizens of the world), I am seeing girls with no abayas/ covers. You get to enjoy the place, the view. There is a playground, even oldies can play. Going inside, there's garden and fountains, good for... More

On the skirt of the city of Riyadh, take your family during or just after a heavy rain, you will get the feeling that you are not in the mid of the desert seeing and listening to the flooding water in a desert is quite an experience..

This is a Good Picnic Spot in Riyadh and one of the few places where you can go with your family and friends and spend some weekend time specifically in winter times. Local People consider it as a Dam but its not exactly the same considering the size of the Dam you tend to see in US or India. The... More
