Covering over 13 square kilometers, King Salman Park will be among the biggest city parks worldwide. It will be five times larger than London’s Hyde Park and four times larger than Central Park in New York. It will combine a wide variety of environmental, cultural, recreational and sports activities that will significantly enhance the life quality of all Riyadh residents.
