Sad to say the gardens are not taken care of. Many dead or non existent plants (a "rose garden" without a single rose in it). Most special attractions are closed for construction. Signs inadequate and hanging sideways. Lots of visable and unorganized electric cables. Seems...More

Food like salads were really great! Done Israeli style with lots of herbs and spices! The pastas were great also. The servings were huge! Great place to eat and go around the garden. Can be full at lunch time.

This Botanical garden is amazing for two main reasons. First, for the preservation of many, many native plants that would have been unnoticed or extinct. Second, for the introduction into Israel of many, many, plants from all over the world.

Pleasant garden for a walk. Very well maintained. There is a tiny lake with water plants that grow in it. Sometimes ducks also. Very nice to walk with very beautiful flowers especially in the spring. There is a nice restaurant by the lake.

Minuses - there is little to no shade varying on different areas of the botanical park, and during a hot summer day the gardens seem half dead. There are many walk paths but little to no sitting places, drinking water, shade from sun or rain....More
