visiting alone the nearby park
november 03, 2011 thursday


this park is just 300 meters away from batha center. with its unique architecture as a water tower, everyone who see's it will not thought its not like that. at 1st glance, my impression it was a huge torch tower. riyadh water tower was built during the reign of the government of hid majesty king faisal bin abdul aziz al saud, the great. the tower holds 12,000 cubic meter of water and was completed in service in october 1971 AD. this also an actually copy of the Svampen Tower in the Swedish town of Orebro.

entrance fee of 5 sar, and if you want got to the viewing deck atop, additional of 10 sar located at the 16th floor of its elevator. and from the ground, this 16th floor is the only accessible for tourists visit. opens everyday, 0900H to 2100H. this tower is best shot at sunset or at night.

this park, which is ideal for family and kida only, is included in the 5 sar entrance fee and especially designed for kids due to its amusement park included. kiddie rides have excluded fees that included roller coaster, bump car, airplane ride, etc. there is also miniature of famous landmarks and tourists spots in saudi arabia found at the center of the park. you can navigate this mini-map by walk or by boat.
