Ein Hemed is described on internet as a park where one can wonder under the trees and where there are natural springs. The park was very very disappoiting with a little guther of smelly water, a view point with no view and a park the size of a city garden (small!). The crusader farnhouse is okay, but not spectacular.

I have not been there in a long time, but I feel there are many more places of interest that I would recommend before I would suggest Ein Hemed.

We came by this place only by coincidence. You can walk around an arranged area and make a pick-nick. Shortly after there is the high old building which was suppose to be a farm house once. Inside there are still some old mill stones. A nice place for families with children.

An old crusaders fort, a stream, picnic tables, playground and an easy walking trail for families. Lovely for a short walk and half-day in nature.

Tha parking is convenient, and there is a small stream in the park and some ruins for the children to have adventures. A bit dirty and sometimes crowded on weekends.

this is a beautiful park just outside jerusalem, complete with picnic tables, a small stream running through it, archeological site, and plenty of space for kids to play and adults to rest, stroll or even play frisbee. there is an entrance fee since it is a national park. Please keep this place clean !!

This is a lovely little park right off the highway near the entrance to Jerusalem/Motza/Abu Gosh. A spring-fed stream runs down the length of the park (well, at least it does in winter-time, I subtracted one star because the stream is almost dry at the end of the summer), and the beautiful banks of the stream are sprinkled generously with...

Ein Hemed is situated on your right hand side just off the road to Jerusalem. It is a nice place where one can stop for couple of hours, rest a little, take a little walk among ancient trees, by the water of a spring that runs through place. The place is full with figs, grenades and olive trees. It is... More
