Could have been,and obviously in the past has been, so much better. Recently visited to find a small very average park- all water features dried up and dirty. Very disappointing and not worth a visit.

The park is a welcome contrast to many American in city parks. No dog leavings to worry about, well-tended, clean with no cigarette butts. Just relax for a bit and enjoy to and from the Old City.

This park is very nice to walk and sit over the grass, you can relax and is very close to the city center areas.

It is the only park in the central area of town with lots of grass. Ideal for family picknicks or just relaxing with a book.

The park is splendid. It has lots of shade during those hot Jerusalem summers. We were with a group of around 20 people and spent a few hours talking and reminiscing.

Seeing green grass in Jerusalem in the summer is not usual, but Independence Park is a special exception. The area is lovely with lots of shade trees. If you are needing a free place to spend morning or afternoon hours, this is a nice place...More
