The Liberty Bell Park, one of Jerusalem’s largest, was created in 1976 in honor of the US bicentennial, and derives its name from the replica of Philadelphia’s famous Liberty Bell at its center. The park stretches from Emek Refaim in the German Colony to Jabotinsky Street and Keren Hayesod Street in Talbiyeh. It is across from the picturesque Yemin Moshe neighborhood, and only several minutes walk from many of the city’s luxury hotels including the Inbal – which overlooks the park – the King David, and Mamilla pedestrian mall.
Liberty Bell Park is a great spot for a picnic and contains plenty of facilities for both kids and adults. These include basketball courts, a roller-skating rink, playgrounds, a very climb-worthy dragon sculpture, and of course, the Train Theater, which stages puppet shows and other performances for children of all ages. Most importantly, Liberty Bell Park boasts plenty of grassy expanses and shade.
Next to the Liberty Park is Jerusalem Skate Park which has become a popular pace among teenagers and skateboard and roller blade lovers.
