Al Khobar was originally a small port town inhabited by fishermen and Al Dossary tribe members. The area’s oil was discovered in the early 20th century and from that point, the city and urban area developed very rapidly. The city of Al Khobar quickly transformed into a commercial and industrial hub, with businesses and opportunists flooding to the area in hopes of benefiting from this newly found wealth.  The waterfront of Al Khobar was quickly regenerated into a corniche with parks, restaurants, attractions, and shopping.
