Dareen East Beach | Jubail, Saudi Arabia

Dareen East Beach | Jubail, Saudi Arabia

Dareen East Beach is a 173 acre park on the Arabian Gulf, designed to serve not only the needs of a rapidly growing city, but also to draw visitors from the greater region.  The park is composed of three distinct layers:  a neighborhood park, a sequence of large earth forms, and an ecological island. All park layers provide opportunities for gathering and play, add topographical complexity to the site, provide access to the water. The 60 acre island dune, the third layer, will be planted with native grasses, salt-tolerant shrubs and mangroves. Beaches, nature trails, and sites for picnics and camping will offer a quiet escape from the city, attracting human visitors as well as migratory birds and wildlife.
