Going there all my life since I was little, and also now with my young son. Great place to come and let the children run on the grass and climb the statues. Also many shaded corners to sit in hot days.

We went up with my grandson. He was cranky but still had a good time looking at the sculptures. They are so sweet and easy to identify with, they are nice for all ages. The little ones can even sit on a donkey (careful that the metal isn't hot in the sun). So it's a really nice walk around the... More

For a garden of this rather small size we were impressed by the large amount of sculptures to be found in this garden. Great works of art but can also be a great place for families with small kids as the main topic of the sculptures seems to be kids. Love it

This is a must see. On the walk up to the Baha'i Gardens you pass this hidden sculpture gardens by Ursula Malbin, a German Jew who fled Nazi Germany. So many bronze life-sized sculptures of women and children, very innocent, very moving. It's so peaceful, and there is drop dead beautiful view of the Mediterranean Sea, Haifa coastline and port.

In comparison to the parks in Haifa- it's a good one. Always clean, offers intimate spots for lovers and can be a wonderful attraction for kids. It has a wonderful view, shade and big grass loans. It is mostly clean and is also subtitle for a workout. It is being locked for the night.

We did not make a special trip to get here, but rather planned a visit on our way to another attraction. This was a good thing, since we did not spend a lot of time there. The sculptures are beautiful, though, and the surrounding nature is quite relaxing.

A Marvelous representation of Ursula Mahler's outstanding sculpture, that reveal humour and movement -most subjects are children and teens, The setting is wonderful with plenty of space to view each sculpture and see wonderful views of the Haifa port area! An interesting note the ultra religious Jewish community demanded that the statues wear pants for modesty. THe sculptor handles this... More
