Nice to visit, especially in the evening Sep 01, 2011
This park is like a hidden secret place in Cairo. After wondering around the dusty streets daytime, it was very refreshing to pay a visit here. After dark it was all lighted beautifully. We did not find many places in Cairo that we could call "romantic", but this was one. The small entrance fee well worth it, and we would recommend this place for anybody ho has a spare evening in Cairo and wants to relax.

Al-Azhar Park Dec 22, 2009
If you have a spare day before you leave Egypt this is the place to go to. Al-Azhar Park is very important for tourists because it is surrounded by the most significant historic districts of Islamic Cairo.

Entrance fee is 5.00 LE ( 1.USD) weekdays, and 7.00 LE weekends and Public Holidays, note that the price is the same for Egyptians and Foreigners unlike the Pyramids, The Citadel and The Egyptian Museum.

It is located on the Salah Salem St., close to the Citadel (El-Qala'a) a short ride from Heliopolis.
