Al Baha is a province that offers everything for everyone, from historical sites to cultural events, an abundance of nature, and a diversity of wildlife. One prime spot for those looking to get away from it all is Raghadan Forest Park, located just between Al Baha and Taif city. Raghadan is considered one of the most beautiful parks in the kingdom known for its lush greenery, breathtaking view of nearby mountains and valleys, and favorable climate.
Raghadan Forest Park started off as an untouched, wild area, before it was then adapted into a park, making it more accessible to visitors. In fact, you may now easily stroll over the hills using the pavements, and, with juniper trees taking up 90 percent of the park, still be able to enjoy the wilderness around you. Visitors may also get the opportunity to see natural wildlife around the area, since the park is home to indigenous baboons. Raghadan Forest Park is also famous for its waterfalls, with special lighting effects being used to complement them during nighttime.
In addition to sightseeing, there are various activities and attractions that one may partake in while at the park. Raghadan is particularly famous for its Sunday market, which is one of the most popular ones in Al Baha. There is also a playground for kids, as well as food and barbecue stalls, a movie theater, paragliding facilities, and a mini store. The park is also no stranger to hosting festivals in the summer.
