Neot Kedumim Park

About this place

The Biblical Landscape Reserve of Neot Kedumim (Hebrew: Pleasant Pastures) is located halfway between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv. It is a unique park spread over 625 acres, where the natural landscape of the Bible has been recreated. The park focuses on plants, archaeology, zoology, history, and geography from the Bible.

Neot Kedumin is the site of special events, like the exhibition of booths during Sukkot. Visitors can see excavated ancient agricultural installations, and enjoy the olive groves, vineyards, water pools, and wildlife. See what agricultural life would have been like in the time of Abraham, or Jesus, including cisterns, wine presses, oil presses, and threshing floors. Learn about the symbolic Seven Spices, and which plants gave Israel the name, Land of Milk and Honey.

A tour of the park highlights symbols of the Bible and the way of life, 2,000 and 3,000 years ago. The park accommodates groups, team-building events, Bar/Bat Mitzvah parties, and tour groups. With prior arrangements, the park can host tree planting, and group activities such as Torah scribe demonstrations, or sheep herding. Individual travelers can spend a couple of hours here, following the two walking trails that pass the most important points of interest.
