Higher Commission for Riyadh Development (HCRD) started in 2018 a new comprehensive design for Al-Hair lakes to establish the location as an eco-tourism site. Al-Hair lakes are downstream Riyadh, KSA capital, from the Wadi Hanifa.
Today the Al Hair project is completed covering a 40 square kilometer area including the protected Al-Hair area and includes refining the flood canal. The project reorganized the 750,000 sq. meter lakes and the creation of a permanent water channels flow as well as environmental rehabilitation for each of the lakes and Al-Hair dam.
The project included the establishment of five islands within the lakes and the construction of five bridges over the canals, as well the establishment of two control towers in addition to the planting of 1,600 trees in various parts of the site.
