Teddy Park, Mitchell Park & Gardens honors the memory of Jerusalem's legendary Mayor and the founder of the Jerusalem Foundation. Facing the walls of the Old City and in the center of Jerusalem, the park includes Israel's only sound and light water fountain. The Park will provide cultural and educational events to all sectors of Jerusalem society. It will be a central meeting point between old and new Jerusalem. The Park will also be home to a multimedia Visitor’s Center that contains an interactive exhibition of Teddy’s story and the history of the development of the modern city. The various pathways, squares and other landscaped areas, including waterways, a natural amphitheater, a donor wall honoring those who made significant contributions to Jerusalem and more will provide visitors with a unique experience in a unique city, honoring a legendary man. There is no more fitting crossroads, no more appropriate site for the Jerusalem Foundation to tell the story of Teddy's life and acknowledge those who contributed to modern day Jerusalem.
