 Activities for the whole family at the Gardens  | Tuesdays and Saturdays | May and June 2014

Spring and early summer are particularly beautiful periods at the Gardens, offering nature at its best in the very heart of Jerusalem. Water lilies grace the lake at the entrance, flowers line the paths, and the deciduous trees are green once again. It's the perfect time to stroll, to sit and relax in the shade on one of the lawns, and to enjoy the family-oriented activities offered within the framework of MishpachTeva.

Huge games laid out on mats on the grass | Guided activities related to Bonsai and the art of Japan | A special trail for bimbas (small plastic vehicles for tots) | Creative workshops for children | Seed collecting from the Gardens' plants
