Sacher Park (Gan Sacher) is Jerusalem’s largest park and is very centrally located, about 3km west of the old city. Enjoy the fields and various trails. It’s also a good place to access for those staying in hotels on or near Jaffa Street near the old city. The street is closed to cars and the light rail run in the middle. There are multiple streets to turn left and work your way about 0.5 km down to the park.
We’ve mapped a 5.5 km route of the park, starting near Kraft Stadium. It’s about 1.5 miles from the northern to the southern end at Rehavia Park. The western part of Sacher Park has some important sites: The Monastery of the Holy Cross and the Israel Museum, and then passes by the Knesset (Israel Parliament) and the Israel Supreme Court on the western side of the park.
Add-Ons: There’s a good public running track just west, at Givat Ram Stadium.
