Well, if you are lucky and catch a clear day it's a beautiful photo of the artificial lake and the high Atlas in the background. If it's dizzy, what is most of the time, it's not too exciting. Be there early, in the mid day you can forget the photo.

We visited the parc although many people weren't very excited. Well the facts are that the definition of gardens vary in every country. It's a very quiet place with a pond, small palace and many possibilities to sit in the shade of the park. So don't expect huge entertainment just a tranquil oasis outside of the city. Also highly frequented... More

You can walk around the garden and the pond but shades are very limited to some benches. You can take some pictures with a camel as long as you give the owner a few dirhams. You'll need to pay MAD 10 per person to go inside the pavilion.

Yeah it looks nice in the pictures on the internet but there is basically nothing to see. It is a nice vast place with a lot of olive trees and a big pool at the end. You can sit there, look around for 5 minutes and go back. At least it is free. I wouldn't recommend this place for tourists... More

The place itself is nice to walk through and see all the olive trees surrouding the area. The pavilion is beautiful on the inside with different patterns and colors (Islamic architecture). You only pay 10MAD admission fee.

Dates back to the 12th century. Thousands of Olive trees are set around a muddy looking pool. Must of looked good in its day. Not worth the effort to see.

A nice stop with some great views from the balcony. Liked the little art display in the building. Still though, not a lot to see or do given how out of the way the attraction is.

I don't understand why this is a tourist attraction and people write nice things about it. At least it was free! It take like almost one kilometre in the sun to reach the pavilion that I wanted to see reflected in the water as on all photos in the internet. There are olive trees on the way but the view...

This is basically a large square pond surrounded by thousands and thousands of olive trees. Local people picnic under the trees, kids run around and small music bands pop up here and there. This is not the typical manicured tourist attraction. Rather, it is a simple place where moroccan families go for a walk and spend their time. The pond... More

We have walked a long way to get to Menara and we don't think it was worth the visit. It's just a wide pathway with olive treas on either side and the palace at the far back. We did not go into the palace so cannot comment on that. The reservoir/ pool water was not clean. This is apparently a... More
