Two thumbs up!
May 2021
This is pretty much the first 'touristic' place I have visited in Riyadh and I am glad it was. It is free to visit and their is a lot of parking around the area. The place itself is very scenic and a beauty to the eye. Very peaceful. A great place to go for bbq's or even just a stroll with family and friends.

I would definitely recommend checking it out if you haven't yet.

Falls Made in Heaven!

Captivating view of the falls and you will see sorts of animals in the lake like fish, duck, and turtle. Perfect for all families.

Beautiful family place to visit it’s very scenic and there is a lovely walk along the Wadi. It was quiet when we visited but I suspect it can get very busy so I would say pick your time.

We just passed by to see the place. In winter it's really cold to walk there along the lake. And lighting was so poor we couldn't see all beauty around the place. I assume in the summer this place is very crowded. Good for family picnics and outings.

Shaddah festival in Wadi Namar

.First of all when you arrive you’ll find vast parking areas .Then they will guide you to the entrance to buy tickets for 5sr per person. Or you can buy them online .After that you’ll get on a bus to the events area. There were small stalls where you can play games , stunning personas like butterfly lady and goose man will meet you . There was a small stage where an African team were dancing and making Acrobatics. And while walking along side the lake , you will see movies projected on the mountains . There were also kids and adults playing areas for fees . Food trucks are everywhere and the smell is amazing .Finally you’ll ride the same bus from the bus stop to take you outside after you finish having fun there.

Visit in the evening.
Oct 2019
We visited during the daytime, nothing open. This didn't really matter because I wanted to see the place. Looks nice, apart from all the rubbish on the ground. An evening visit would be better when all the food places are open (they are closed during the day).
