Sponsored by the Aga Khan Foundation and described as the green lung of Cairo. It's really well organised and beautifully maintained. The restaurant complex is great, we've visited twice, for afternoon tea and dinner. There is a great gift shop too.

This garden was a better than perfect balance in terms of price vs service. Everything was clean and modern and even a complementary drink was offered to me during check in

Azhar Park is a really nice park located on a peak that overlooks Old Cairo, and has views of the Citadel. You can walk along the paths, or lounge in the grass. It is well kept and full of couples canoodling on the lawns. There are 2 great restaurants to mention- the Lakeview, which is situated on a man-made lake,... More

While living in Cairo one of those things you really miss is green space. This park was haven we could stroll around particularly in the cooler months, there are a number of restaurants which you can dine at offering nice food. There are nice water features as well as lots of plants and green space. Gets very busy on Fridays

Cairo city doesn't have many places for kids, so after few days of sight seeing and endless walking we were happy to find Al-Azhar park. It has a nice play area for kids. Crowded but we didn't care. A nice lake , lots of places to sit and play on the grass. A nice lake. Mini train rides for kids... More

If you feel tired from shopping in bazar and walking among old Cairo´ s houses, rest for a while in this park. There are good traditional restaurants, shop where you can buy nice souvenirs without quarreling about its price and more, it has excellent view over whole Cairo - if you are lucky and no smog is around.
