We could not go beyond the wire fences as I had my little dog with us, but we could see through far enough to realize that you need to go deep in to find the Gazlles. in the park surrounding there are statues of them that create interesting photo opportunities, but beware the dust on the pathways, it's like a white powder, and the dog was covered in it. There are also a lot of burrs and prickles in the dry grass. Not good with open toe sandals. Was nervous not just for the dog, but for me, as underfoot was not without dangers. A lovely setting at end of day for a barbecue... and we saw a school group having one.

On a sunny morning in January we walked around this beautiful place for about 2 hours, saw a group of Mountain Gazelles resting and got aquainted with "Johanna" the gazelle that had been raised in captivity and who seemed to follow us around. The views are great, we walked all the way up to the first pool. Beautifully landscaped park. We will be back in a month when the spring flowers start blooming. They were out of the English maps, but there are many signs along the trail in English, explaining the area and history.

Wild nature in the middle of Jerusalem

Between a number of neighborhoods you find this valley which you can enter for free, the space offers a big number of spots to sit and relax, and then when you start seeing the gazelles walking around, life becomes perfect =)

Disappointed

We visited here on a sunny but mild day hoping to see some gazelles but left disappointed. Fortunately there was no entrance fee. Other than a small female that was wondering near the entrance the rest of our walk produced nothing. This is certainly a peaceful spot in the centre of a busy city...

This is certainly a peaceful spot in the centre of a busy city where you can wander the park at your leisure or sit at some of the rest areas.

This park has great potential, but is new and lacks any shady areas. It is difficult to see the gazelles during the day, especially in hot weather. There is a visitors information desk where you can receive explanations. The site is free, which is a plus.
