Greening Cairo's Historic Core

Cairo's historic core has a new park.

" The sprawling city of Cairo has congestion, pollution and 17 million people. Now it has a 74-acre park right in the heart of its historic center.

The Al-Azhar park is a green oasis in the city where sand and grit can get into your clothing and the metropolitan area spreads along the Nile and into the desert. "
