If the irrigation story is interesting for you then go, otherwise, don't

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... read more

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

The gardens are a little bleak and arid, even in January when we went. The classic pic looks fantastic, but it is not worth the drive to see.

The pavilion was built to house some of the sustains least favourite mistresses - I could live with that. The best time to visit is first thing in the morning when you'll avoid the crowds and have the place pretty much to yourself. Meeting only the occasional stray dog or cat you can walk about the man made basin, take... More

menara gardens set in peaceful surrondings is an enjoyable pleasure, walking round you feel like your the only person there,the main intention was to irrigate the surrounding gardens and orchards the water actually comes from the mountains in the background its a truly magical place and an enjoyable trip.

Disappointed that the lagoon and infrastructure are crumbling and messy. It could/should be a beautiful place to visit.
