En route to join a tour of the Supreme Court we went strolling in the park looking for a new memorial we had heard about: in honor of the battle for Leningrad and the terrible toll in lives Jewish and otherwise in its defense. The monument is interesting enough but not overwhelming in size or presence. The pavement surrounding the piece is still under construction as is the landscaping.

Yes- it’s a big park where many games of soccer are played.... ... but we went during the Festival of Tabernacles (Booths) event- the day of the big marches- we were there with the Israelis who had completed the morning hikes to Jerusalem. Most of the international and Christian visitors for the support Israel March of the afternoon had not yet arrived. Nonetheless, there were plenty of people there, and stages presenting dancing performances that were bad, idiotic, primitive, in bad taste and downright insulting: one was 50+ year old female dancers almost in tutus, and another- even worse- was a dance troupe of 20- something young women dressed as Hasidic men with cloth fringed garments with tassels and ear locks and big black hats.... so insulting and condescending to a large part of the city’s population (imagine a dance troupe of white people dressing as stereotypical blacks of the inner city and performing their version of their stereotypical dance routines on a public stage in NYC).... so why was it OK here? On the other hand- there was an acrobatic performance from India, and that was good and worthwhile- please look at those few photos... ....and please like this review.

Nice quiet place for a picnic
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on June 29, 2019

This park is a nice place for a stroll or picnic on friday afternoon or on the Sabbath. Its located next to the Knesset, the Israeli parliament.
