Marrakech Parks and Public Gardens

Marrakech has made huge strides in recent years. And this is nowhere more evident than in Marrakech Parks and Public Gardens. The city has become green as parks and gardens spring up and as public spaces are given life through plants and trees. The parks and gardens in this article all have free entry to the general public. Plenty has been written about the fee paying Majorelle Gardens and about the newer and totally spectacular Anima Gardens. There are also some wonderful spaces at the waterparks, notably the Oasiria gardens. Local people, however, tend to congregate and stroll in the free green spaces offered by the local and district councils. And some of the parks are amazing!

Dotted around the city centre are a number of high quality parks. The Harti Gardens lie just across the road from the Grand Cafe de la Poste and Zara Home – you can’t get more city centre than that! And moving towards the Medina from there you come across the Moulay Abdesalam Cyber Park – a great concept that provides locals with free wifi in a natural environment.

In Marrakech, where there is water there is life!

One of the more formal Marrakech Parks is to be found at the Menara Gardens. It is focused on a poolside pavilion amidst rows of olive trees. It’s not my cup of tea … but it makes for a stunning photo op.

And even in spaces which couldn’t really be called parks you can see the will of the city to provide a quality environment for locals and visitors alike. The gardens along the Av Mohammed 6 are a good example.

In a recent photo blog I mentioned that gardens are being planted all around the Medina Ramparts. Marrakech is becoming a garden city! It’s great news for visitors … and even better news for residents.

Marrakech Parks and Gardens are becoming a way of life. Local people are beginning to take pride in the green spaces. Wasteland is being turned into quality living space and everyone is better off for it. If you haven’t been back to Marrakech for a while, come and see the progress. Come and breathe the cool air of the Marrakech Parks and Gardens!
