AL AZHAR PARK
In 1984, His Highness the Aga Khan envisioned a park for the citizens of Cairo, one of the densest cities in the world. The 30-hectare site was selected, because of its enormous potential as a “green lung” at the centre of the historic city. The topography of the site, formed by debris accumulated over centuries, provides viewpoints dominating the city and offers a spectacular 360° panorama of Cairo.
