A lovely park to stop and enjoy lunch either as a picnic or at one of the restaurants. One can just enjoy a stroll too.

This is a beautiful park which is very well set out. It is built on several levels with sloping paths between the different attractions. It has lovely rows of palm trees, a lake, well tended garden and water fountains. The only negative side is the loud music which they would be well advised to dispense with.

A wonderful place to hangout. The need to control some people's attitude in order to maintain the quality and standards of the park. Things like swimming in the fountains and similar behaviour should be dealt with strictly.

An oasis inside the crowded Cairo, inside it you feel the beauty, the calmness and the tranquility. The park is kept well as always, the view of Cairo is great from there. The lake restaurant is a great experience too.

It is always a good suggestion for people who want to spend some cool time with friends or family. I went there many times for the purpose for photographing and to spend some cool time with friends. There are many good views up there to take your shot, I prefer the sunset view. It is a cheap place if you... More
