I walked all the way from Jemaa el Fna, (its a long walk - about 40 minutes), however i enjoy walking and it was a beautifuly warm February afternoon. AS i arrived the attendant was clearing the area of visitors stating that it was closed. I walked around the outside and when about half way around discoverd that everyone had... More

upon arriving at menara gardens after an exhausting walk from the kenzi farah hotel I was dismayed to find a large dirty pool of water surrounded by a dilapidated stadium which had rickety seats and was clearly constructed by cowboy builders. As such I would not advise you to travel to this so called tourist attraction that was anything but... More

We walked from El Fna to the gardens but besides the pool there is nothing much to see. The snow tiped mountains make for a nice picture by the pool. But no flowers or anything to be found. And it's quite a long walk, make sure to visit the hotel on the way out of the Medina!

Ok so this is obviously a large concreted area for locals to walk, chat and generally promenade. Must be a real bonus for people walking around an open space after the madness of the Medina. I would much rather have had another trek around the souks. My 82 yr old husband undertook the long walk to the Pavilion as we... More

So disappointed by these "gardens" which consisted of rows of olive trees, and how the pool reflects the mountains is a mystery given the water was muddy brown on a nice sunny day with lots of bread floating in it and not a duck or bird in sight.! Litter everywhere. The title gardens suggests some maintenance or care which wasn't... More

This place was buzzing with local families coming here to stroll or enjoy a picnic. The place is just a large garden with a huge bassin in the middle. There's nothing special to see, but a great place to sit and relax, just like the locals seem to do. There are a few kiosks where you can buy a drink... More

Very out of the way, not much to see (basically field of olive trees in dirt fields plus a big square pond and a small charmless building. Give it a miss unless you have loads of time and literally nothing to do.

It's a place where the locals go and picnic under the olive trees (and leave all their rubbish!) and wander around. It's a hang out for the young to play music and enjoy themselves and for that reason it was an experience and it is great for them, but for a tourist seeking an attraction it was very disappointing.

Great view on pool, pavilion,palms and the Atlas mountains covered by snow. Out of traffic jam , sellers and river of tourists. Need only some chill out spots and could be perfect!

We visited the Menara Gardens on an excursion which also visited the Majorelle Garden. The Menara Gardens are quite dirty and not very well maintained. If you'd like to visit and see the building, you only need about 5 minutes there to take some photos and to take in the view - there's nothing else around so you really don't... More
