The Orson Hyde Memorial Park covers an area of around two acres and contains natural woodlands and spectacular views of the Kidron Valley and the Old City. This park is largely un-trafficked, lending itself to a sort of secret garden of a different kind.

The park was cultivated just near the Jerusalem branch of Brigham Young University, the Mormon's flagship college, and was named after Orson Hyde, a prominent leader in the Mormon Church who visited the Holy Land in the late 19th-century.

    We walked down the trail starting at the end of the road by the BYU Jerusalem Center. The trail signs are well marked. Just don't turn off the road/path until you see a sign. At the sign that shows turning to Gethsemane,...
