Along with the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization, Fustat Hills Park will have a number of activities that puts the focus on Egyptian heritage, with specific areas designed to showcase and honour the interweaving lattice of Egypt’s history, whether it’s Pharaonic, Coptic, Islamic or contemporary.
Taking advantage of the large swathes of open air and greenery, the park is planned to host cultural and commercial activities, hotel services, and open theatres, as well as heritage garden areas, an adventure area, and an entertainment centre.
