Leisure resort plans revealed

20 February 2004
The first phase of a massive leisure resort to be built northeast of the capital was inaugurated on 19 February by Riyadh Governor Prince Salman bin Abdulaziz.

The project, which will be located 50 kilometres northeast of Riyadh, will cost an estimated $650 million, the majority of which will come from the private sector.

The resort will include a safari park, a car racecourse, an aviation club, a nature museum and a theme park. Companies will soon be invited to bid for the projects, the Prince said.
