A little island of peace and nature in a noisy and dirty city. A place where you can relax after hours wondering and lay on the grass, under the shadow of a tree doing absolutely nothing. Probably my favourite place in this city.

On the old road from Salé to Kenitra the gardens have been redone a few years ago. They were the private gardens of an old French family who lived in Morocco before and after its independence. After they left the gardens ere abandonned but luckiky were re planted and organized.

Not a "traditional" Moroccan destination, but a cool and refreshing garden to wander in, especially on a very hot day. You can feel the effects of the cooler microclimate as soon as you go in. Themed gardens around geographical regions are more or less authentic; there is room for enriching the plant collections, but if you're not too much of... More

Even as someone who speaks no French or Arabic, this lovely garden was a great place to spend my afternoon. Endless paths, pleasant surprises (waterfalls, rope bridges), a reptile house and educational markers along the way make it worth the drive from Rabat.

Sadly, this garden tells you a lot about Morocco and Rabat. Faded glory and beauty and unless you are the King who live sin well-manicured acres of prestine gardens, this one is just for the peasantry. Mins you, many Moroccans in Rabat still seem to find peace and solace here. You can tell a lot about a city by the... More

This garden was opened in 1951, and is a small but beautifully laid out area with winding paths, hidden features such as little waterfalls, miniture tiny gorges, rope bridges and rocks to scramble over. This makes it a great place to take young children who can explore the area. The various routes are marked by colour coordinated signs and there... More
