Dream of green, Cairo Magazine, vol. 3, March 24th 2005

By Ursula Lindsey and Issandr El Amrani

Dream of green, The al Azhar Park looks gorgeous, but can it live up to its lofty aspirations?

Ursula Lindsey & Issandr El Amrani - Dream of green, Cairo Magazine, vol. 3, March 24th 2005

- intro:

A patch of clean and peaceful grass is a rarity in Cairo. What little green space is available is all too often fenced off by over-zealous authorities or reserved for the privileged few who can pay club membership fees. City residents tend to find their nature where they can: ahwa owners split the sidewalk in front of their establishments to plant ad-hoc gardens, and families bivouac on median strips and stroll under the dusty foliage along the Nile. But this may change thanks to the creation of Al Azhar Park. While questions remain about access and affordability, many Cairenes of all social classes agree that the development of the luxurious green oasis at the heart of a decaying historic neighborhood is a step in the right direction.
