Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi directed, on Tuesday, for the Fustat Hills Park project to be established, to add value to the state’s efforts to develop the Greater Cairo region.
During a meeting with Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly, Al-Sisi also ordered for the development of the roads, axes, and main entrances surrounding the project site to continue. These roadways will accommodate the movement of citizens and the expected tourism to the park.
Presidency spokesperson Bassam Rady said that the President reviewed the preparations that have been made to apply the project’s general plan.
Fustat Hills Park is set to be the largest park in the Middle East, established on an area of 500 acres in the centre of Historic Cairo. It will house the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization (NMEC), alongside the Ain El-Sira Lake and “The Religions Complex”.
The park will include a number of activities that highlight Egyptian heritage, with areas designated to showcase Egypt’s Pharaonic, Coptic, Islamic and modern eras.
It will also present cultural and commercial activities, hotel services, and open theatres, whilst featuring a large plateau that offers unique visual sights.
The park will also have a heritage gardens area, an adventure area, a cultural area, a historical area, an Egyptian flower garden area, and an entertainment centre.
