Also called Jardían d'Olaho. The first day we tried to see the gardens, but we couldn't, as it closes early during Ramadan. The next day we went back earlier for a walk, enjoying the nice, cool air in the shaded areas.
The Zidoun Ibn Garden is one of the largest in Agadir, occupying an entire city block between 18th November Street and Agadir Street. It has the synagogue on one side and the city's biggest mosque on the other. It's a cool place, with old trees, where locals often come for a walk at the end of the day, while tourists generally prefer the beach. There's a play area for children and a few fountains. You can ride a bike here, though not many people do. Workers in the neighbourhood come here to eat lunch and relax on the grass. The variety of trees is interesting, because it includes some that you do not usually see in Europe.
Agadir isn't a particularly charming city. It was destroyed in the 60's by an earthquake, and nowadays the rebuilt city is a series of concrete buildings, large tourist resorts, and no pedestrian centre. But there are a few nice gardens, such as these. They look very Mediterranean, with eucalyptus that smells good and fresh. As the gardens are just a five minute walk from the beach, they're a good spot to enjoy a picnic or escape the heat of the sun. Older locals really appreciate this spot, and it's a nice place to go to get away from the tourist hordes.
The best thing about Agadir are the parks, gardens, and green spaces in the city centre, which you don't often find in Moroccan cities. Agadir is a new city, having been entirely rebuilt in the 1960's after being destroyed by an earthquake. The government rebuilt it with a focus on greenery, so you have parks like this one, the South Park, which is close to some of the big hotels, like the Kamal and Tivoli. Most people come to Agadir for the beach, and the gardens are a great place to escape the heat of the sun. They are popular with locals, who come here for a walk with the kids.
