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
انصح بزيارتها وقت غروب الشمس المنظر رائع جداً او بالصباح بما اني من محبين الصباح و المطعم اعطيه ٤/١٠ و الاربعه بسبب الفيو الخدمه بطيئه جداً رغم كثرتهم more »I would recommend visiting it at sunset. The view is very wonderful or in the morning since I am a fan of the morning and the restaurant give him 4/10 and the four because of the service is very slow despite their many
Mooi, maar geen must. Als je in de buurt bent, dan moet je wel even gaan kijken en wandelen in dit park. more »Beautiful, but no must. If you are in the area, you have to go for a stroll in this park.
The park is very nice to walk or have a glass of tea on the top. It's always alive and full of people, school kids, tourists and all kinds of people. The water can be a pit cleaner but I accepted worse since allot of people were playing in the fountains. The park has a very nice Arabic architecture and full of greenery
Great place for a whole day outdoors and to enjoy long walks among the vast green areas. It is best to go early at the opening time. Very clean. Could use some more maintenance though. Needs more restaurants. Needs a much bigger parking space. Definitely needs more emphasis and attention to the historical areas all around the park, especially the parts of the old city wall that are actually on the premises.
