The park was established in 1981. Over 400 varieties of roses are grown there, many of them gifts from countries around the world. The Wohl Rose Park covers 19acre. It is one of the few rose parks of its kind in the Middle East, where there is no rainfall in summer.
The park's Garden of Nations is made up of sections donated by other countries. Each section has rose varieties characteristic of, or grown in, the respective country. The park also has an experimental section where new varieties of roses are tested for their suitability for public and private gardens in Israel.
In October 2003, the Wohl Rose Park won an award for excellence in an international competition for rose gardens from all over the world. The park was proclaimed one of the eleven most beautiful rose gardens in the world. In addition to some 15,000 rose bushes, the park features expansive lawns, hills, quarries, an ornamental pond with aquatic plants and fish, a waterfall, rockeries, and sculptures. A sixth-century mosaic floor unearthed at Kibbutz Sde Nahum was installed in the park.
The Knesset Menorah is located outside the park, facing the Knesset.
Due to the park's location opposite the Prime Minister's Office and other government buildings, it is a choice site for Israeli demonstrators: The garden often hosts tent cities of protesters, with tables for petition signing, banners and placards.

Possibly because of the long winter, there were plenty of buds, but not that many roses in bloom. Definitely worth another visit. more »
I have passed this area many times , missed it, and I know why. It has potential to be pretty .it requires a bit of love n care
Beautiful park area which is free. Roses are nice but could probably be a little more groomed. As well, better signs would be welcome. But it’s really a pleasant place to visit with the family and super accesible
