When fully completed, possibly in 2023, the botanical garden will be the largest on the Arabian Peninsula, and also, one of the largest in the world featuring educational and research facilities, a playground, and a visitor centre. The facility will also offer a tour of the central deserts as well as the southern and northern mountains. 

Visitors will also have the opportunity to experience the flora and vegetation of Oman and also an opportunity to learn about Oman’s rich cultural heritage and agricultural heritage alongside the country’s legendary hospitality.

According to Salim Al-Mahrouqi, the Minister of Heritage and Tourism, the garden will cover 420 hectares and it will be home to species that include endangered ones from eight varying habitats in the sultanate. Salim also stated that the garden will showcase traditional crops and the various ways that the people of Oman make use of plants.
