King Abdullah International Gardens

King Abdullah International Gardens is an ambitious development and plans to be home to the world’s largest temperature-controlled gardens. The site will cover 400 million years of the earth’s developments including flowers, trees and vegetation. The areas will cover the Jurassic, Cretaceous, Devonian, Carboniferous, Cenozoic and Paleobotanic periods and will give visitors the chance to learn about the history of the planet.

The site will be divided up into different gardens, and The Garden of Choices will be the last garden. Located in a crescent building, the educational space explores how the lifestyle choices we make today could change the world for future generations. Plus, there will be The Butterfly Garden, which gives visitors the opportunity to admire and walk through a garden filled with the colourful creatures.
