This world-class recreation centre is one of the key venues in the 1,000 hectare King Abdullah Sports City development and will be a place where young people from Saudi Arabia can participate in a wide variety of sports and leisure activities in a fun, exciting and dynamic environment.
Designed to the highest international standards, the facilities are publicly accessible and aim to encourage engagement in active lifestyles so that the younger generation become more involved in sport and live healthier lives. In addition, the centre offers state-of-the-art facilities for event and competition scenarios, and provides an opportunity for Saudi Arabia to host major international sporting events and promote an image of sporting excellence.
Catering for approximately 2,000 visitors at any one time, the new venue encompasses swimming pools, indoor sports halls, a boathouse, a youth hostel, extreme and urban sports areas and outdoor sports pitches. There will also be a range of social and leisure facilities to serve less active users, such as those accompanying youngsters who are participating in the activities, or those who simply want a relaxing stroll by the waterfront.
