Al-Azhar Park

Interesting
Opened in 2005, this 30ha park is in keeping with the city's tradition of parks and gardens, which occupied 20% of the territory when the city was originally founded. Between the City of the Dead and the Al-Azhar district, lined to the west by the restored vestiges of the 12C Ayyubid walls, the hill affords remarkable panoramic views over the city. You can stroll about the flowerbeds and lawns, water channels and fountains, and the royal palms, acacias and jujubes inhabited by herons and egrets.
