In the eastern part of Park Hayarkon lies nature’s sculpture studio and some very peculiar gardens.
Israel is renowned for its amazing variety of, well, everything, and the Rock Garden, one of the largest of its kind, gives ample expression to Israel’s geological diversity. A poet has certainly been at work on the sign-posted explanations for the various kinds of rock. For example, in this eye-capturing setting, lowly limestone becomes “a gift from the sea” and granite “a message from the depths,” to name a couple of the treasures on display from nature’s sculpture studio. Wandering the trails in the 10-acre enclosure you’ll find the rocks interspersed with some 3,500 species of plants, including over six acres of blooming cacti.
