The industrial city of Yanbu is the first smart city in the Kingdom and is located west of Madinah, overlooking the Red Sea. Resembling a natural location, the lake provides an ideal environment, a breather and a tourist destination for families and visitors with its waterfalls, lush green grass, wonderful night lighting, green landscape, waterfront, walkways and children’s playgrounds, the Saudi Press Agency reported.

The lake is situated in the industrial city, 3 km from the Red Sea, along Mina Street next to the Equestrian Center. It stands adjacent to the iconic monument statue, where visitors can enjoy a stroll down the purpose-built walkways. This artificial lake is designed in the same pattern of natural lakes in terms of area and surrounded by palm trees and various types of trees at irregular distances.

There are two separate islands to simulate the natural environment and create balance in all parts of the lake. One of these islands is connected outside the lake with a pier while the other one is entered through a wooden bridge. The park has a bird garden that attracts migratory birds.

It is an ideal picnic destination for all the family and attracts many visitors looking to enjoy the tranquil atmosphere and cool breezes. The greeneries surrounding the lake are spread over an area of 21276 square meters, consisting of a total of 373 trees and palm trees and around 1590 shrubs.

The lake, which is spread over an area of 2,982 square meters, was used to take advantage of its nature and the surrounding elements such as the green belt and the green surfaces that cover all parts of the lake. The fountains in the middle of the lake form a breathtaking natural landscape as it constantly is replenished with water.
