Create an itinerary including Jardin Jnan Sbil
Take a break from the noise and activity of the city with a visit to Jardin Jnan Sbil, a well-maintained collection of gardens. Adding some much-needed greenery to the medina area, the gardens were commissioned in the 18th century by Sultan Moulay Abdellah. The medieval walls of the medina mark the boundaries of the garden, enclosing a quiet area filled with plants, fountains, walkways, and orchards. Sit in the shade of the trees and recharge, then head back out to explore the historic district. Arrange to visit Jardin Jnan Sbil and other attractions in Fes using our Fes road trip planner.

  • One of the main attractions in Fes. Very rich in exotic plants and trees. A variety of medicinal and aromatic organic herbs.

  • The gardens themselves were somewhat underwhelming when we visited in mid-October, but as many reviewers have suggested they do offer a welcome respite from the rigours of the medina.

  • This is a great place to relax away from the slightly claustrophobic medina. It's not that big to feel lost.

  • The park is located near the Jewish quarter and it can be the great place for break. There was no water in the lake neither in few canals. The garden is huge with amazing exotic flora (and few cats :) ). It is very clean with lot of banks for the relaxing.
  • Actually fantastic park previously but nowadays there is no water in the pool or any water canal or any other small pond or pool. I don't know why, maybe due to water shortage, global warming or something. However park is still relaxing and away from city rush.
  • This park is definitely a must visit on your trip to Fes. There is a wide array of vegetation and the way the park is layed out is very beautiful. Sadly all the water related elements were out of use. As around 20% of the park should be covered in water this is a real shame.
  • Awful. Bad maintenance. The police walked behind us. You can not do anything. Not a single fountain on nor clean, there is trash around, the artificial river has no water. The artificial pond is full of trash. The police scolded the children for picking up a random stick, looking at ducks and there are no signs for anything. If you do not have anywhere else to go, you can spend your time there. Everything is "la la la" which means no. The police don't understand french nor spanish nor english. Un parque con mal mantenimiento. El lago sin agua, las fuentes sucias y apagadas, áreas cerradas y el policía se la vive silbatándoles a todos. Si vas con niños no lo recomiendo porque no pueden pasar a las áreas verdes. Solo es un parque para caminar entre los gatos.
  • A very pretty public garden just a short walk away from the Blue Gate of Fes’ Medina. None of the water features were functioning/had any water in during our visit, but that didn’t take away from the beauty of the garden! Lots of lovely fruit trees and colourful flowers to walk around, and plenty of benches to sit down and enjoy the place on. I found that (being from the Green Country™️ of England) I was really starting to miss greenery after spending a little while in both Marrakech and Fes, so it was nice to have a wander round!
