Allegria Pocket Park
Cairo-Alex Road, Egypt
Allegria is a sophisticated residential compound in 6th October City. Design details for public spaces establish a separate identity for each neighborhood yet blend together within the overall design concept.
One of the major attractions in this 5 acre paradise like park is the creation of multiple unique gardens within its parameter, each with its own distinct character. There is the Orchard Garden displaying fruit trees and flowering beds while the Habitat Garden flutters with butterflies and birdhouses and is surrounded by nectar producing plants and gravel bed streams.
The major water features of small lakes and fountains are housed within the Formal Garden. Encircling all the gardens are shaded pedestrian walkways leading to the children’s playground. The passive landscape design around and within the gardens provides a variety of seating areas for meditation, relaxation and for social gatherings.
