Beautiful place, loved it and even went back again twice. The only thing was that the umbrellas seemed to have been taken down. The Jacaranda trees didn't bloom as well.

It is a nice park with some coffee shops and a vast area to play walk/run. The walls of walk way are decorated with art pieces. During spring season this place is extra colorful with the blooming Jacaranda. Be prepared to find crowds on weekends so try to reach early. Finding a parking spot can be a challenge.

A unique place in Saudia Arabia “Habibi” If you are living in Saudia Arabia and still didn’t visit Abha and specifically Art street, you are unlucky. Nowadays (from april to may ) purple flowers season its attractive for all tourists. The street is well decorated and modernized. A street parking, Lights , restaurants, coffees shop’s and family huts also there. Many kinds of flowers and greenery make your trip amazing. The recommended time for this street is evening time (Golden Hours) but you can visit any times. In evening times sometimes specially on weekends Parking is full and they blocked the road. So go there early. One of the Indian restaurants is there less spicy 🌶 but very clean and quality food.
