  • Al Kharrarah National Park 

    While some locals refer to it as a lake, AlKharrarah is a seasonal body of water that forms as a result of rainfall gathering in its basin like topography. It is flocked by Riyadh dwellers who have made it a winter tradition to camp or have a day trip here after the rain, or simply when the basin is full. The park also has quad bike rentals, vast sand dunes, and horseback riding, making it an easy all in one spot.
