Large, beautifully maintained and rich park, you will have the opportunity to have a look over the city and share locals good time.

The Park is a perfect place to relax, have a lunch or dinner in the 2 of its restaurants with fresh air. Walking around among the young people, always with a smile to the foreigners, Agnabis, is lovely. My favorite place in Cairo.

It was a great idea that the Aga Khan institute transferred this dump into a fine park . There are several restaurants and cafes in the premises. But the best one is studio Misir which is located one a high rise of the park there.

The best park in Cairo, everything here is excellent clean, calm, well managed! Great. The only downside is the kids play ground which is not that good and should be cared about more

A good way to spend the morning or afternoon. There's no train ride inside the park so you must make sure you're fit and have flat shoes (for the ladies). Loved this place, been there each time I visited Cairo (x2).

The landscape is very rare to find in a city like Cairo. It is a must visit for Egyptians and tourists alike. The magnificent view of Old Cairo and the Citadel is just breathtaking. The best place to dine with a view is "Studio Misr"....More
