“Al Azhar Park! Thumb up”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

You have to go there not only because it provides an escape from the city with all the pollution and chaos but also for the good food and the breathtaking panoramic view of Cairo it offers. The park has an entrance fee equal to 1 USD

“Cairo's lung”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

Azhar Park is not just a park . it's a place where u can attend live music shows. sometimes circus. but my favorites are free meditation sessions every friday & saturday morning from 9-12. Yoga. pranic. reiki . u name it .
Sometimes it's very crowded but it's one of the less polluted places in Cairo.

The park is so big and it's just near the old Islamic Cairo, it provides an escape from the city with all the chaos and pollution and it's great place to spend the day specially under the sun in Cairo winter.

“An oasis of green in old Islamic Cairo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

What a gem this park is. It is perched high overlooking historic Islamic Cairo and has lovely play areas for kids, ponds, and grounds for strolling. Great place to spend the day with the family and to get out of the bussle of Cairo traffic. Wonderful for families.
