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.

  • Unfortunately in the spring, and even earlier, no roses are blooming! Unable to evaluate only the structure of the Park and landscape design. It's all good. Is where to relax. Hot even in March. A lot of people were enjoying the spring sun and delicious food on the trip. But Russians barbecues nobody Kindle! Range of pure! Next, the Knesset and the Israel Museum. You can all visit together.

  • Such a beautiful place with beautiful flowers and just a relaxing vibe. A great place to have a picnic, chill out with some friends or just go for a walk. In this garden there is no rush and you can stop and smell the roses (litterally).
  • Beautiful park with many pretty spots. Quiet and tons of different plants. 1 min walk from the cinema city center and 10 walk from the central bus station.
