Take in the history and scenery of Al-Azhar Park, a large public space that offers relaxing grounds and cultural intrigue right in the heart of the city. The result of a major redevelopment and archaeological project, the 30 hectare (74 acre) park opened in 2005 with a collection of landscaped gardens arranged in an array of different regional styles, plus renovated 12th-century walls and medieval mosques. Restaurants and cafes serve local delights next to the main water features, and the hills afford attractive views of the citadel. With our custom trip planner, Cairo attractions like Al-Azhar Park can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
Al-Azhar Park reviews
Um grande parque localizado no coração do Cairo, é possível passar a tarde toda por lá. A large park located in the heart of Cairo, it is possible to spend the whole afternoon there. more »
The Al-Azhar Park is located near the historic Darb al-Ahmar district in east Cairo. It’s hard to imagine that these lush and beautifully landscaped public grounds were once a 500-year-old garbage... more »
Beautiful public park overlooking the city. We were there on a picture perfect weather day and had lunch at a wonderful outdoor restaurant. So nice we went back for dinner when the whole city was lit up. This is a great spot to get the non tourist vibe of Cairo. Highly recommended
Great story of creation of this park. It was landscaped over a landfill site. Beautiful area, wonderful sunset. Great view of the Citadel. Foreigners pay 20 L.E. but well worth it for such a well maintained park. No exit to the Citadel, must walk around to it.
