This study aims to reveal the reality of service facilities presented for children in the city of Riyadh through utilizing the descriptive method. The study sample was chosen randomly; it included 180 mothers who had registered their children in kindergartens in Riyadh during the academic year 2015-2016. To achieve the goals of the current study, a questionnaire consisting of three areas of utilities (parks and playgrounds, libraries, and health facilities) was distributed to mothers. Results showed that there were no special service facilities for children, and that if any facilities existed, they were not suitable for children or were merely attached to adults’ facilities. Also, partner communities were reluctant to participate in providing facility services to children. The study found that the educational qualification, the number of children, and the location influenced significantly the responses to the questionnaires.
