The survey producing this data was used for a study that aimed to examine the impacts of a large-scale rehabilitation project of an urban ecosystem, particularly in terms of its place-image and place-identity. The selected case-study was that of Wadi Hanifah, a valley located in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The questions aimed to examine the perceptions, uses, popularity, and attachment through the meanings and perceptions people tie to it, through the physical environment, and through the activities people par-take in at the Wadi. The data also provides basic information of age, gender, nationality, and residency.
