Ramat Hanadiv Park covers approximately 450 hectares (1125 acres) of
land perched on a plateau at the southern tip of the Carmel mountain
range in Israel.
At the heart of the Park are the carefully manicured Memorial Gardens
which extend over approximately seven hectares (17.5 acres),
surrounding the Baron and Baroness Rothschild's crypt. The broad
lawns, trees and colourful seasonal flowers attract hundreds of
thousands of visitors annually.
The Gardens represent a European landscaping tradition, orderly and
meticulous. They integrate cultivated with uncultivated spaces, and
foreign with indigenous Israeli-Mediterranean vegetation. The Memorial
Gardens are comprised of several smaller, specialized gardens including
the Cascade Garden, Rose Garden, Palm Garden and Fragrance
Garden. Over 30 varieties of trees provide shade, while spacious lawns
and seasonal flowers offer a feast for the eyes. The Fragrance Garden
provides a unique and rich experience for the partially and totally blind.
Most paths are accessible to the disabled and handicapped.
