We are all in this together

Keeping Playland open is ultimately up to you.

Playland guidelines are in place so that the facility can be enjoyed again. If you or your child are unable to comply with these safety rules, it's best that you refrain from use of Playland. Please also understand that even though we have guidelines in place, sharing high-touch equipment still poses a risk to contracting COVID-19.

What's next?

Your cooperation and support for this re-opening of Playland trial can lead to further positive changes. Extending Playland operational hours and re-opening facilities such as the Soft Play Area at the Racquet Club are currently under review, pending a successful re-opening of Playland. Thank you for doing your part with following the rules for yours and everyone's safety.

 All Keeping KAUST Safe guidelines  must be followed.

Have fun and play safe!
