No. 0956 Al Azhar Park

Al Azhar Park was a project by the Aga Khan foundation, another fabulous fabulous (that requires double emphasis) undertaking, which transformed what was literally a dump into a reclaimed green space for Cairo. Beautiful proximity to the Citadel, Khan el Khalili and the heart of Cairo - from Al Azhar park you have a stunning view of Cairo, and on a clear day you can even see the pyramids. Great restaurants and cafes, children's playgrounds, beautiful gardens filled with fresh herbs, summer plays and music concerts, and even statues made of out of the recycled waste from the previous dump that was in the location. Fa-bu-lous.
