Cyber Parc

Gueliz & Ville Nouvelle

Stop and smell the roses at this 8-hectare royal garden, dating from the 18th century. It now offers free wi-fi at various outdoor hotspots, which draw a steady stream of locals – hence the park's less-than-regal name. At the southern entrance there's a small museum about the history of telecommunications in Morocco, run by Maroc Telecom.
