Empress Farah Pahlavi with Egyptian children visits Al-Azhar Park, Cairo Egypt

Empress Farah Pahlavi surrounded by children in the Al-Azhar Park. The story of Al-Azhar Park in Cairo, Egypt offers an interesting case study into how improving quality of life through parks and green spaces can lead to positive impacts in cultural and community development. Back in the mid-1990s, the Aga Khan Trust for Culture started construction on turning a derelict space in the middle of one of the densest city in the world into a beautiful central public space. Located in Cairo, Egypt, this park was “Previously a municipal rubbish dump (for about 500 years), approximately 80,000 truckload of debris had to be removed before construction started and in the process a 12th century Ayyubid city wall of Cairo that was built during the reign of Salah el-Din, as well as some valuable stones with hieroglyphic texts were uncovered!”
