This is not the most beautiful garden in Rabat but I would advise to visit it if you have enough time.

We had a lovely day at the garden. We enjoyed the bridges, the gardens is formed like a kind of maze. It is fun to walk around and getting lost.

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.

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
