We recommend to visit this park just to enjoy beautiful green place, nice atmosphere apart of noisy city. The entrance was 25 LE for adults and 15 LE for kids. Picturesque views to old Cairo, Citadel and another part of the city. There is kids playground here and some cafes to spend time. You can bring your food with you and just sit on the grass - this is what local families do, making picnic in the fresh air.

Beautiful well-maintained nature, the lakes and fountains, the most amazing views over old Cairo, its millions of minarets and the Citadel (picture attached), some very nice restaurants and a great handcraft shop held by the Aga Khan Foundation make this park a particular favorite of mine when we visit Cairo. Did you know it was built on top of Cairo’s “trash mountain”? I call this some great site rehabilitation, and environmentally-friendly on top of that. If you want to make a whole-day experience out of it, you could visit the nearby Citadel itself or get in touch with the Aga Khan Foundation beforehand to book their cultural visit of part of the surrounding area of old Cairo - they maintain quite a few gems nearby.

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 dump! As part of an Islamic Cairo tour, our group watched a short video that described the ongoing transformation that included not only the development of the park but also quality of life improvements for the nearby neighborhood, historic building restoration, and excavation of the 12th century Ayyubid wall. What an amazing project! After touring several historic monuments and mosques in Darb al-Ahmar, we returned to the park to have lunch at the Citadel View Studio Masr restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed our day here and the opportunity to see everyday life as a local and not a tourist.
