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.

  • Wonderful park to walk around in. Beautiful views of sunset! Many places to sit and hang out with friends! Lovely even at night with all the lights. Didn't try to eat at any restaurants. Women's bathroom didn't have toilet paper.
  • A clean, green and spacious park. Having beautiful lake and fountains. Very suitable place to spend good time with family and friends. The kids corner is well organised for kids. Its recommended and worth visiting.
