Also dubbed as the Landmark park of Riyadh, World Sights is an ideal weekend field trip for families— and lovers of selfies.
Located along the Eatern Ring Road and just across the Al Hokair Amusement park, is the latest go to place for families in the city. The World Sights park is an initiative of the Arriyadh development authority and features different miniature monuments from around the world.
The entrance fee is SR 10 for adults and kids go in for free. Don’t expect a huge land area to discover, a walk through the park would take you around 30 minutes’ tops including the photo taking moments. We’re happy to note that you can bring food in and have a picnic. We saw families enjoying their night just lazying about on the grass. There are snack carts and vendors on site as well if you’re looking to munch on something.
The park is well-maintained, there’s security guards in key areas to ensure that the miniatures are viewed but not touched. The surroundings are clean and you’d feel safe to let your children play at the the playground. The only issue we had with the latter is the lack of lighting, hopefully that’s resolved soon.
World Sights Park opens from 5:00 PM, Wednesday to Sunday for families and ladies and Tuesdays are for men only. The park is closed on Mondays for maintenance. We would recommend going a bit earlier than 8:00 PM if you want less photobombers in your shots, as the crowd does get thick beyond this time.
