I have visited this place before when the weather wasn't so good, but I went again last month when it was sunny, and oh boy what a difference! Beautiful mosaic tiles in the pavilion, and lush greenery in the gardens and orchards. This is a lovely place to sit and ponder on life.

We visited this garden after the Jardin Marjorelle and the contrast was stark. Menara is more of a local city park, with lots of locals and tourists visiting alike. The park is home to the city's olive trees and reservoir used for irrigation. Our guide showed us the fish that live there by throwing bread in for them to eat!... More

After looking on your web site we decided to visit, it looked magical, that was total joke, the water area was about a third full, the pavilion was crumbling and falling down, an absolute waste of time. I don't know why anyone would take the time to walk to see this poverty stricken park when Marrakech is such a wonderful... More

After seeing the amazing photos of the pavilion with the lake & Atlas Mountains in the background, big things were expected. Unfortunately the grounds weren't kept well, the lake was just muddy with dead fish, the pavilion was in disrepair. It's a shame as it has great potential.

Good for a stroll around when you want to get away from the hustle of the Souks. Pleasant surroundings

Lovely and simple place to have a walk and to enjoy the nice, yet simple nature.... and it's free to enter :) Local people go there for picnics. I enjoyed it more than Jardin Majorelle!

We went here on one of our Thomson trips. We went in the day time, it was a hot day and there was a long walk up to the main garden. When we got there, there was a building with a dirty pool of water in front of it!! With some fish swimming in the pool. It was nothing exciting... More

Not much to see other than a building, a place where soldiers were trained to swim and a bunch of olive trees. Apparently the irrigation story is interesting but its underground...what you do see was not worth the effort in my option. Instead, go to Jardin Majorelle. Menara Gardens is a waste of your time IMHO.

Menara Gardens - not very interesting. had been looking forward to seeing this place, but it was dissapointing. Hardly no garden and just a flat pool of water in front of the little pavillion
