Teddy Park-Review
Aug 2018 • Family
its beautiful at night with music, water show, and lovely view of the surrounding old city area. up to date and well taken care of. in the summer, during the day, the water shoots up for a 1/2 hour every 2 hours so from 3 to 3:30 PM and then again from 5-5:30 PM. the kids LOVE it. they jump, splash, and have the time of their lives in the heat. some kids go in clothes, others in bathing suits. remember to bring towels and snacks and water and suntan lotion and flip flops and anything you would need to go to a pool like area. its a blast for kids but VERY PACKED so keep that in mind if your child gets overwhelmed by crowds.

Great Jerusalem spirit - water, misic and lights
Aug 2017
We've visited the Park in the evening, @21:00. We waited for the show to begin, but it didn't :-(.
After we called the city hall help desk, they said that in the last few days the show was only @20:00 and 22:00, and they don't know the reason. They suggested we'll wait for 22:00. We did another round in the area, and came back @22:00, to see a magnificent show of water, music and lights. it was around 20 minutes, and we really loved it. Despite the cold weather people went into the fountains and it was fun. Highly recommended to all ages!

Where we rested after walking around the old city

Very nice park, has fountain schedule every 2 hours that you can take bath in. Which is cool especially with kids.

Be aware only with looters that sometimes stalk you which happened to us and they were drunk. Just be careful.

Musical water fountain is a must-see!

What a wonderful surprise to find Teddy Park right outside of Old Jerusalem!
Please make sure you check the time of the water fountain music show. It is gorgeous. We saw it at night and the music, the "dancing" water and the Tower of David in the background were just breathtaking.

Beatiful place, fun with water!

A very scenic park. Take a coffee and a halumi sandwich from near by (aroma mamila), and be there at 20:00 - a beautiful water, music and light show. The kids can run inside and get wet!

Loved the musical fountain
Mar 2016 • Friends
We wandered in accidentally, but I believe this should be on your list - a lovely park to decompress from the intense human interaction in the old town. The musical fountain dances to traditional music and is definitely worth seeing!

RELAXING AND ENERGIZING FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
Aug 2015 • Solo
Somehow in addition to all its places of history and frantic tourist activity the City of Jerusalem still manages to establish and maintain many out of the way spots which afford visitors havens of peace.

Teddy Park is certainly one of them.

Centrally located it is just down and across a street from the Mamilla Mall or the roadway leading down from the Jaffa Gate. It is next to the Artists Colony Street and marks one's debut in exploring this often overlooked valley.

One could also walk down to it from the King David and HaEmek Streets intersection. However extreme care should be taken in crossing any of the streets getting to or from it as I find the traffic a bit crazy in this area.

The steps and plazas provide ample space for younger members of the family to burn off steam while the adults contemplate the wonderful views and decide where next to head to.

One could walk all the way to the Zion Hotel and visit the little known Cable Car Museum located at its rear. Alternatively exiting the Artists' Lane one can turn and climb up through the streets which lead to the Yemin Moshe district for a closer look at the windmill.

It is almost magical in the evening and last summer, during Operation Protective Edge, I had the pleasure of walking through it to on my way to an Avraham Fried and Yehoram Gaon concert at the amphitheatre by the Sultan's Pool.

One certainly gets a sense of the meaning of the phrase " going up to Jerusalem " while gazing up at the Old City Walls from the park or alternatively staring down at the valley vista in front of one.

As a staunch supporter and creative force in the development of Jerusalem Teddy Kollek would I feel be justifiably proud of this park which bears his name. It is a great place to learn about his many accomplishments.
