The Hidden Garden In Pittsburgh That Will Take Your Breath Away
Find a sanctuary of quiet and nature right in the middle of the city of Pittsburgh. Stop to smell the array of flowers. Close your eyes and listen to the sound of flowing water. And, stop to admire the fish as they swim in the quaint pond. Escape to this hidden garden in Pittsburgh.
Nestled within the city, Rodef Shalom Biblical Botanical Garden, created as a "replica of ancient Israel," has provided a peaceful sanctuary for Pittsburghers for 30 years.
Stroll through the breathtaking garden that's home to approximately 100 plants, found in Israel, that either appear in the Bible or feature Biblical names.
Explore the garden that features a new theme each year. The theme for the 2017 season, which runs through mid-September, is "Pleasing God and Man: Taste and Smell- Spices and Incense."
Discover such beautiful spots as a gentle stream, a tumbling waterfall, and even a mini desert, all created in the image of the Holy Land.
Pause for a moment to admire the resident fish and...
Enjoy the many moments promised for quiet reflection.
Embrace the tranquility at the botanical garden, which welcomes guests from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday through Thursday (through September 15) and Saturdays from noon to 1 p.m. Admission is free.
Rodef Shalom Botanical Garden hosts public tours on the first Wednesday of June, July, August, and September. Tours and parking are free.
