Gan Sacher is a large strip of green parkland separating government buildings such as the Supreme Court and Knesset from the neighbourhood of Nahlaot on the other side of Ben Zvi Boulevard. The Park contains the Bonsho which is a large Japanese bell presented to the city as a symbol of everlasting peace. It is engraved with the quote, "Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. They shall prosper that love thee as well". The park's wide, flat lawns are ideal for picnics, sunbathing and sports. There is also a rollerskating area, basketball court, football court, cycle path and children's play area.
I recently lived in Nachlaot seconds away from Gan Sacher and I was there almost everyday...it's such a beautiful park...it's a pretty open and vast space with lots of green grass and trees and it's especially nice on Shabbat and Chagim (Holidays) to see all sorts of people with their families just hanging out and soaking up the sun! It also has a sports section for the guys...basketball and soccer and rollerblading, skating, biking...it's pretty cool...definitely worth checking out when you feel like relaxing and chilling!
