  • We were brought to this park friends on a picnic. A great place where you can spend the time we hit the holidays and transportation haven't gone and little that was opened in the city therefore spend time here at nature with such a gorgeous view of the city and the sea was just fabulous. Around all equipped, there are fountains where you can take drinking water, there are benches, there are specially equipped places for a picnic. Even in holidays here were not crowded, great place to visit.

  • Fabulous views of northern Israel from the rooftop. The statute of Elijah was nice, but much smaller than I expected. The pictures I saw made me think it was 20 feet tall. Its probably closer to 4 or 5ft. The area surrounding the statute has a pretty little garden with places to sit and spend time relaxing. It was a group bus tour and unfortunately we ran out of time and could not go in the church.
  • Love the view from here and the statue of Elijah is intense.
  • הרי הכרמל מרובים במקומות ישיבה, טיולים, נוף מדהים, והרבה ירוק בעיניים.
  • Very nice place.
