Deep in the middle of Najran’s Saqam Forest lies King Fahd National Park. One of the most important outdoor recreational destinations in the region, families frequently visit the park to enjoy the beautiful nature and moderate climate, especially during the rainy season.

Spanning an area of 4,000 square meters, the park is characterized by its vast green areas and thousands of trees, shrubs and roses. It features fountains, decorative lighting and gazebos, and pedestrian walkways allowing visitors to walk, cycle and jog.

The park features heritage sculptures related to Najran’s culture, allowing the location to serve as an open museum that showcases local heritage. To ensure an enjoyable day with family and friends, the local municipality also provided many facilities such as praying areas, playgrounds, restrooms and toilets.

Because King Fahd National Park enjoys a prime location in Saqam Forest, south Najran, it is the ideal destination for those searching for tranquility and a relaxing day away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It is little wonder, then, that the park is busy throughout the year.
