The Fustat Park, located in the Old Cairo district of Egypt, is a popular destination for visitors seeking solace from the buzzing city life. Built after the conquest of Egypt by Amr ibn al-Aas in 641, the park is named after the city of Fustat. With expansive green stretches, playgrounds and serene environment, it's ideal for nature enthusiasts. The origins of the park can be traced back to 937 when Muhammad al-Ikhshidi transformed an arsenal established by Ahmed bin Tulun into a garden. Today, the park is a beloved landmark and a testament to the rich history of Fustat, once a hub of trade from distant lands like China, India and Europe.

The transformation of an arsenal into a garden by Muhammad al-Ikhshidi is a perfect example of conservation of history. With its sprawling 105 hectares, the Fustat Garden in Cairo is the largest man-made park in the city. The park, managed by the Department of Special Gardens, Cairo Governorate, was opened in 1989, on a former dumping ground, Abou al-Souod. Visitors are guaranteed to learn about the architectural wonders of the Roman and Islamic times along with the fascinating history of this beautiful destination. Fustat is a place where families can spend quality time with their loved ones at a low admission cost and numerous recreational activities.

The upgrade of a CCTV system for a large park comes with various challenges. The most significant challenge being minimal disruption caused to the park's opening hours as a result of its size and the operations taking place. These factors affected the upgrade process, and proper planning had to be put in place to ensure that the process ran smoothly. The customer requirements also had to be considered as any equipment installed had to be highly industrial due to the extreme weather conditions in the park. Additionally, to preserve the aesthetic appeal of the park, careful consideration had to be given such that the installation process did not compromise the park's scenic views. The CCTV system was thus installed with consideration of all the factors mentioned above, resulting in an exceedingly efficient and up to date surveillance system for the park.
