Although it was rather too hot we had a really enjoyable time in the gardens. My sister was in a wheelchair and we took turns pushing her up the hills. I wouldn't recommend wheelchair users doing this unless they can walk the few steps if necessary as it gets quite steep. Good variety of plants and a nice tree walk... More

This Botanical garden is amazing for two main reasons. First, for the preservation of many, many native plants that would have been unnoticed or extinct. Second, for the introduction into Israel of many, many, plants from all over the world.

Pleasant garden for a walk. Very well maintained. There is a tiny lake with water plants that grow in it. Sometimes ducks also. Very nice to walk with very beautiful flowers especially in the spring. There is a nice restaurant by the lake.

We went to the botanical garden with our children last week. Expected something different but we enjoyed. There is a nice cafe overlooking the water. Kids enjoyed feeding and looking at the ducks....

Minuses - there is little to no shade varying on different areas of the botanical park, and during a hot summer day the gardens seem half dead. There are many walk paths but little to no sitting places, drinking water, shade from sun or rain. The park seems unkept and half wild in an unbecoming way, toilettes are run down,... More

This August we are planning a night visit (next week) to enjoy the special event planned. If... More

Wonderful garden. Great atmosphere and children's event. Worth the visit. If you are into botanical gardens, this one is very well planned and informative. Not everything is accessible due to construction, but you don't feel that you're missing anything because of it L.

A great way to spend a day with young children. The Discovery Trail comprises four areas: water, land, trees and roots. The activities in the first two areas were excellent - interactive and varied, and kept kids engaged. We did not manage the find the last two areas. There is no signage so it is easy to miss or take... More
