Good City Park

We’ve walked through the park several times while touring and traversing the area. It’s a good place to pause for rest and to picnic.

Very pretty park

This was a very pretty park in Jerusalem. The Jerusalem March set to start at this park. Very family friendly.

That's correct- this large green grassy area in western Jerusalem is the focus and organizing point for many large events, and yesterday- it was for the annual Jerusalem March held during our Feast of Tabernacles. We explored the massive green grassy area of western Jerusalem- very crowded with thousands of locals (many as individuals as my son and I were) and many as workers or associated with the big national enterprises: gas, electric, telephone and health funds. But the purpose for us was to see all of the foreign international groups (Christian believers) who came to demonstrate their support for the State of Israel. And there were many thousands of them, displaying their national clothing, colors, symbols and flags- smiling and waving and vocally proclaiming their support!! See my attached photos! One highlight was the performance of parachuting from a high plane (described as the first time ever for parachuting into Jerusalem), with a large green grassy fenced off area of the park for the landing after the several thousand meter and almost 10 minute descent..... and one of them missed and "overflew" the landing area and zipped over my head (no more than a meter above me): he was agile enough to lift his legs and maneuver his parachute sail to avoid giving me a massive kick in the face with his aeronautical military boots) and then proceeded to careen through the suddenly shocked crowd of celebrants into tumbling onto a grassy spot full of spectators. We then watched the entire parade as it wandered through the city of Jerusalem: we walked the several kilometer parade route along side them- to the First Station and then we walked back and returned to the Central Bus Station (23,140 steps and 12.8 kilometers total for me for the day).
