Dirty shambles of a place . Nothing really there . Impressive gated entrance . After a broad walk way to the area of the pool - pond whatever you like to call it you just walk around the large rectangle of the pool . This is murky and dull . Surrounded by a poorly maintained concrete retaining wall . The... More

We walked here from the city - which took quite a while. The park is mainly olive trees with a wide road through to the pavilion which has a large lake in front of it. It is pituresque as the Atlas mountains are beyond. The pavilion is 10 Dh (£1) to visit and has some nice painted ceilings and intricate... More

It's a shame to yet again experience an historic treasury not being taken care of by the Moroccan government. Sad and ill kept place.

The Menara Pavillion has been totally neglected and is an absolute ruin - it is a great shame as it must have been lovely just 100 years ago but full of graffiti from local kids and totally decayed with no investment in it it is not worth the trip outside of the medina. It is a place moroccans can go... More

Not a great deal to do or see. If it was sunny, it would probably be a relaxing place to walk around but the pictures of this place are better than actually going. Give it a miss!

Unless you have plenty of time to spare in Marrakech, this park is probably not worth the effort to travel to. The path from the entrance takes you through miles of concrete to the lake in the middle of the park, with an expanse of trees in the park. Yes, it's free and kept tidy but as a tourist destination,... More

The main attraction here seems to be to watch the fish jump out of the water when they are fed, in reality that is the only time you can see the fish as the water is so dirty. It's a nice walk to and from if the weather is nice, other than that, it's brown water with fish and lots... More

I think this place is stunning. Before saying it was a waste of time,people should remember where they are. Moroccan people do their best I think to keep the place tidy nobody is funding them. People go there and they expected a Dubai service. Just enjoy the weather, the peace and calm, the mint tea, the people, the food and... More

Basically a dirty pool with some metal fences in and a very deteriorated and unlooked after pavilion. Was a good hours walk from the medina and complete waste of time!!
