Take in the relaxing atmosphere of Menara Gardens and Pavilion, a set of botanical gardens offering locals and tourists a break from the lively activity and noise of the city. Originally created in the 12th century, the gardens wrap around a central artificial lake, which supplies water to irrigate the surrounding orchards and groves. A 19th-century pavilion stands on the shore, against the backdrop of the Atlas mountains. Stroll around the lake, taking in the pavilion from a number of angles, and explore the gardens of palms, fruit, and olive trees.

Awesome scenery. I would recommend to go there before sunset to get even more spectacular views. but note that There is no much to see more than a nice construction and the pond. more »
A pretty typical garden space for Marrakech. There is a large paved walking area where you will find many vendors. The best part of this location is the sunrise view around the man-made pond area. The water is not clean, but the view and photo opportunities over it are very nice.
