As the central public open space from which the residential, medical, education, commercial and leisure districts radiate, the iconic green oasis aligns with the Kingdom’s 2030 goals. With a design theme that encapsulated the story of time and transformation, the park’s circular promenade represents the connection between past and present, earth to sky and people to each other.

Taking form of an infinity ‘loop’, the urban landscape is comprised of a variety of ecological, cultural, recreational and sports amenities. Considering the natural significance and influence of site’s cyclical forces such as astronomy, water and light; along with extensive anthropological research into the culture, the design narrative addresses the capacity of the landscape to be ever changing in its ability to build a legacy of stewardship for future generations

In participation with many reputable design firms, EDSA helped define the final vision direction for the park’s character during an 8-week design competition. The resulting central park master plan has a series of adaptable spaces that balance with drama and surprise as a means to give purpose, cultural relevance and historic context to the urban realm.
