Gardens & Parks
Caesarea National ParkCaesarea National Park is one of, if not Israel’s, most impressive archaeological site.
The beautifully restored harbor here was built by King Herod and is a work of engineering
marvel. The site is a fascinating place to explore and the museum includes a great
multimedia explanation of the history of the port. Within the park is the Caesarea
Amphitheater, also restored, which during the summer regularly hosts concerts of both
local, and international acts. The Harbor Beach is located within the Park although you
can enter separately, and is totally unique in its setting, with superb facilities.

Alona ParkAlona Park, Mei Kedem (Ancient Water) A water tunnel extending 280 m out of
Mei Kedem, which was built more than 2,000 years ago, in Herod and Hadrian’s day.
The water tunnel was part of an engineering system designed to supply water to
ancient Caesarea. These days, you can walk along the tunnel, with the water
reaching up to your knees.

Shuni ParkEnveloped by vineyards and world-class wineries, Jabotinsky Park lies at the foot of the
Ramat HaNadiv heights, at the crossroads between Binyamina and Zichron Yaakov.
This area was a flourishing settlement in Roman times, as the discovery of the remains
of a theatre and other archaeological finds from the period attest. A large structure was
built here during the Ottoman period, and between 1914 and 1947 it served as a base
for Jewish pioneers and units of the National Military Organization in the Land of Israel.
