Cyber Park, Marrakech

One great thing about Marrakech is that it is a successful mixture of the ancient and the modern and uses today’s technology in an innovative way. This is borne out in the amazing Cyber Park.

The park is spread out over 8 acres and if you decide to take a picnic there, don’t be surprised to see people happily tapping away on their laptops, as there is access to Wi-Fi throughout the park.

If you fancy sending an email to your friends and don’t have a laptop, you will find computer stations at convenient points around the park. There is also an interactive map and educational information available to everyone. You can also visit the small but interesting Museum of Telecommunications managed by Morocco Telecom.

The park was created in the 18th century by Prince Moulay Abdeslam as his personnel orchard producing dates, olives and other fruit. During the French Protectorate the park was enlarged and beautified with rose bushes, emerald green lawns, conifers and palms. They also installed four basins and fountains.

It was abandoned in the mid twentieth century until it was taken in hand by the Mohammed VI Foundation and reopened in 2005. There are plenty of benches were you can relax in the shade and enjoy this splendid park, or you can visit it in one of the horse drawn carriages that are for hire.
