This is an oasis in the big hectic city. It has an amazing nature right there in a desert city. It's really peaceful even that's it's in the city. It's a fun places to observe people... All types of people - family, lovers, tourist... Young and old. Diffidently worth a visit.

The Park is great with lots of amazing views of the city. However I recommend visiting it in the middle of the week, so it won't be crowded.

the place is nice and you really should check the restaurants i would recommend this place for the large number of people who want to hang out and do some activities. you might like the view from there as it shows some of the city from above but you have to go to the right place to see it.

The park had blessed grass, splendid views of Cairo, fountains, water, food stands, play areas and everything you could want in a park. Such a contrast to the rest of Cairo where it is near impossible to find a patch of greenery at all. This park was created from a garbage dump but you would never know it now! The... More

A lovely piece of greenery in a crazy, loud city! Nice for a bit of time out. We enjoyed lunch at the grill, which was also very lovely. Got quite a few stares, but that's what you get when you're the only foreigners around!

Best place for a sunset picture over Cairo. Also a beautiful place to stroll around in the late afternoon early evening after a busy day in the noise and pollution of Cairo. There are a couple of restaurants and snack places in the park so a great place for supper!

There is a small cost to enter the park. This helps pay to keep the park clean and safe. I went right before sunset and the views were beautiful. Since I was at the park during Ramadan, I witnessed families and groups breaking their fast (Iftar) after the sunset. Cool experience to be part of - seeing the smiles and... More

it is a new park in Cairo , very near to Islamic Cairo area and Khalili Market, very beautiful garden with wonderful scenery as well as nice restaurant that offer very traditional delicious meals.
