  • One of best places to visit in Saudi Arabia, specially if you are with family and kids.
  • A must visit for a tourist to know about history of the royal family. Also, don't forget to take a camera with you.
  • I liked it, amazing green area and lovely historical buildings.
  • Good lovely park to be on family picnic
  • This place is great. Without a doubt worthy of your visit specially during winter season. The only problem is the lack of shops or cafe nearby.
