Parks run by the agricultural ministry in Egypt will be open to visitors for free on Friday to mark national Orphans Day, the ministry said in an emailed statement.

The decision will apply to those parks that are under the control of the ministry nationwide, a list which includes Orman Park in Giza, the Giza Zoo, Zamalek's Aquarium Grotto Garden, Alexandria's Antoniades Garden, the Botanical Gardens in Aswan, as well as many other gardens and parks in other governorates.

The ministry has come up with a plan to avoid overcrowding and maintaining cleanliness at the parks during the day, the statement added.

Egypt celebrates Orphans Day every year on the first Friday of April.

Government-run parks usually require a ticket for entry, with prices varying between attractions but typically ranging between EGP 2-5 (USD 0.11-0.27) .
