Wohl Rose Garden, Jerusalem
(4.2/5 based on 15+ reviews on the web)
Wohl Rose Park is a public garden in Givat Ram, Jerusalem, located opposite the Knesset and government precinct, at the foot of the Israeli Supreme Court.The park was established in 1981. Over 400 varieties of roses are grown there, many of them gifts from countries around the world. The Wohl Rose Park covers 19acre. It is one of the few rose parks of its kind in the Middle East, where there is no rainfall in summer.The park's Garden of Nations is made up of sections donated by other countries. Each section has rose varieties characteristic of, or grown in, the respective country. The park also has an experimental section where new varieties of roses are tested for their suitability for public and private gardens in Israel.In October 2003, the Wohl Rose Park won an award for excellence in an international competition for rose gardens from all over the world. The park was proclaimed one of the eleven most beautiful rose gardens in the world. In addition to some 15,000 rose bushes, the park features expansive lawns, hills, quarries, an ornamental pond with aquatic plants and fish, a waterfall, rockeries, and sculptures. A sixth-century mosaic floor unearthed at Kibbutz Sde Nahum was installed in the park.The Knesset Menorah is located outside the park, facing the Knesset.Due to the park's location opposite the Prime Minister's Office and other government buildings, it is a choice site for Israeli demonstrators: The garden often hosts tent cities of protesters, with tables for petition signing, banners and placards.

  • Nice Park, big, beautiful. Here is a great number of roses from different countries, there are pergolas, beautiful Fountain, waterfall with pond, great lawn. There are tables for checkers or chess. Perfect for both daytime and evening walks. Great panorama is visible at night. Nearby is the Parliament of Israel and Israel's historical Museum. Entrance is free of charge. Great place for a picnic.

  • Nice garden with lots of potential, but very sparse and barren when roses not blooming. Garden of the nations is cool, and pool and waterfall nice feature. 
  • בסמוך לכנסת ישראל נמצא הגן הזה שמהווה נקודת תצפית לא רעה וזווית צילום טובה על המשכן. למי שמשלב סיור בכנסת מומלץ להחנות את רכבו שם ולעשות סיבוב קצר בגן של אתנחתא לפני הכניסה לאולם המליאה
