  • Namar rehabilitation project included refinement of flood streams and other works necessary to provide the project with infrastructure and services such as local routes, lighting network, a corniche overlooking the lake dam, guidance system, and improved traffic management system to serve local farm owners and hikers. Additionally, the project included afforestation using palm trees and local plants, and landscaping of sidewalks and walkways. The project also included the following:  Roads and traffic facilities  Local traffic is the main focus of the valley traffic plan. The valley road network was designed specifically to alleviate flood-related hazards and its rocky edges prevent vehicles from slipping into the bed of the valley. The 6-km local road in Wadi Namar ‎is equipped with traffic signs, traffic calming devices, and parking areas on both sides that can accommodate about 800 vehicles.
  • One of the finest recreation area in Riyadh. It has been built along with Namar Dam. Government has facilitated to a good extent. Waterly places are not so common in this desert surround city of Riyadh, so such places seem more beautiful than what they are in reality. You can enjoy good trails, beautiful scenery, and a fun time. A good recommended place to visit on a regular basis. It has many areas for different activities like picnic shelters with grills and fireworks.Falls Lake recreation area is a great place to go to do nothing. Its a good place to relax and read a book in the afternoons as rush normally builds in late evening. LOVED every minute of it! It was cold out and amazing experience in night...
  • Wonderful place for family picnic and get together if more number of people with you.And children can have fun.
  • Nice view of water fall drom different places beautiful ambiance must go for family and friends and bbq
  • Nice place to spend a entertaining evening. Wadi Namar is now managed by General Authority of entertainment Saudi Arabia. They have given a name to the place that is O'Hara land. Now you can not go directly to O'Hara land by your car. You have to go to the O'Hara parking first park your car in the parking area. You can reach the parking area easily by following the sign boards which you will start seeing before the turn (sloppy road) for O'Hara land. O'Hara land opens from 4:30 pm onwards. You should reach O'Hara parking before 4 at parking lot. Now purchase the entry bands for sar 10 for all the visitors age above 3. Now the managing committee will provide busses to reach the O'Hara land. Bus takes a different route and takes half an hour to get there. After reaching there you will see the beautiful view of the valley. View looks more beautiful in the evening with lights. Attractions - Lake side walkway, market, lake side restaurant, horse rides, bungee jumping, other rides for kids, lot of eateries. And the main attraction is light, sound and prop show by a foreign group. You need not to pay for this. It is really good. There are some local artists also performing at different places along the walkway. Worth visit. As per the latest update from my friend, entrance ticker has been raised to 35 and 30 sar for the entertainment event.
