Jardins de l’Agdal

Though the perimeter of the Jardins de l’Agdal falls into our Walls of Medina run, this area is a worthwhile run of its own – with lots of options and variation. We recommend starting in the 400 hectare Agdal Gardens, where the pathways are lined with colorful orchards. It’s easy to put together a 10 km loop of this park, but if you’re itching for more mileage, the Oasis Hassan II strip to the east of the gardens is a nice 1 km addition. Runners can expand the loop to Avenue Al Oued, Avenue Al Mssalla, and Avenue Tassiltante for a total of 15 km.

Essentials
  • Agdal Gardens: 10 km (6 mile) loop; Longer option: 15 km (9 mile) loops
  • 38 meters (125 feet)
  • Agdal Gardens Entrance
  • Route Golf Royal
