“Very nice urban garden for relaxation”
Review of Jardin Jnan Sbil

Jardin Jnan Sbil

Reviewed June 2, 2014

We visited this garden on a very hot day, so it was nice to be cooled in the shade from the mature plantings. A very pleasant garden to sit in and enjoy, or stroll through. We were in a loose group, and the women in our group were not harassed. The water wheel sculpture that is featured in descriptions of the park is rather ugly. It isn't an authentic water wheel, or a reproduction, but rather a kinetic sculpture.

This is a welcome respite from the bustle of Fes and not a place to be missed to see beautiful flowers and plants. The garden is very well kept and it was a beautiful sanctuary that was relaxing, quiet, and the opposite of busy-ness of the souks. Many guidebooks say there's a cafe with drinks/snacks, but it was nowhere that we could find.

This old garden has a wonderful, peaceful ambience and mellows out the whole Fes experience. I found it very soul restoring and relaxing after the bustle of the souks, and a slow wander among the tall trees, fountains and floral displays definitely recharged my batteries. Many locals use the park, sitting in peaceful groups, young lovers steal some quiet time together, and many sit alone in reverie. I liked Fes much more as a city after visiting this garden.

Prettiest gardens we saw in Morocco. However it was a bit awkward trying to find somewhere to sit and read. Nice place but once again you probably need to be with a man otherwise you will get harassed.

Visit the park - only 5 minutes walk from Bab Boujeloud - in the afternoon. Lovely restored garden. Lots of moroccans are sitting on the benches and fountains. A nice place to relax after a day in the medina
