STAYING ACTIVE It’s summertime and the children need to be entertained now that schools out! More than just a place for children, M’Nar Park will delight children young and old. Made in Tanger took a tour of the park!
To get there, you’ll have to head out of Tangier, about 8 kilometres, along the coast as the park is located in Malabata, overlooking the city. You’ll feel like you’re arriving in another village with signs indicating the roadways you need to take to get there. It feels like a game upon entering: family homes on one side, water-park on the other and a snack-bar in the middle.
As soon as the summer peaks, the park opens its pools. Don’t plan on swimming laps, the two large communal pools are more for having fun than having fun. At the end of one of them are waterslides for the older and more adventurous children. For a more calm, the park next to the waterslides has umbrellas and a more tranquil space.
And now it’s lunchtime and you’re feeling a bit hungry. A dining area is located in the middle of the park and given its location up high, it provides a panoramic view of the city. From one side, Spain and the other side the Bay of Tangier. And as the name suggests, Sunset Café offers a beautiful place to watch the sunset from a two levels and its terrace.
The rest of the year the Game Park is open, (open in the evenings in summer and day/evening the rest of the year). Several activities are available to all ages: mini-putt or the splash park for those 6 years of age and older, or even the Dragon or roller coasters for children over 12 years old.
Finally, for those who want to stay on site, apartments are available for hire (for the day or the week) and can hold up to 10 people and provide free access to the waterpark.
