- Al Azhar Park

With funds , what had been a mountain of garbage, transformed into the city’s first (and only) park of significant size. You can stroll through a profusion of gardens, emerald grass and fountains, or sit beside the lake or on the terraces of one of the restaurants, admiring the superb views over Cairo.
