Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

King Abdullah Park

King Abdullah Park is the largest park in Riyadh, located in Al Malaz, south of the city center. The park is famous for its dancing water fountain displays, sprawling green lawns, and vibrant gardens. It’s also a runner’s dream, with wide stone and brick paths spanning across 318,000m². The main path follows the ovoid perimeter of the park for about 2 km, but there are lots of interior walkways and more paths circling the stadium to the south. It’s a safe, well-lit space to run at night, when the fountains are at their most impressive and the heat has dissipated.
