King Abdullah International Gardens

    One of the three largest botanical gardens in the world, the King Abdullah International Gardens will cover a total area of about 2 million square meters and consist of a range of different ‘world’ gardens, of specific scientific, cultural and environmental interest, that represent all kinds of different climates. In addition, its aquariums and parks will be home to a wide variety of animal life, from birds and butterflies to fish and reptiles. Aimed at the scientific community and the public alike, visitor amenities will include markets, theaters, meeting halls, coffee shops, children’s playgrounds and other services. 
  Displays will include a botanic garden with its own museum, a seed bank, a gene bank, scientific parks, an international garden, water gardens, a Valley-walk and open areas for strolling and picnicking places. Observation towers will permit visitors to enjoy all gardens, without placing either flora or fauna under stress. The gardens are expected to become a major tourist attraction and serve as a reflection of tourist projects in Riyadh and Saudi Arabia in general. This mammoth project represents a huge leap in the conception of large-scale tourism and recreation in the Kingdom, and in addition to residents, will attract visitors from neighboring countries.
