I did that one last year in August. We got there very early so it was empty and enjoyable.
But by 10am it was packed, making it quick challenging, especially with toddlers.
Most water places will fill up quickly in the summer. No way around that unfortunately.
We had good luck last summer at this location, was quite empty.

My wife and I went with @satturn on the old city tour and we brought our one year old in the stroller. We had a fantastic time, and he was very conscious of the stroller and made sure we got to see everything. We have lived in Israel for five years, and I spent my summers in Israel and have been on a lot of tours in the Old City. I thought I knew the old city before, but he showed us a whole new fascinating side. A family friend with little kid ages 5-14 and they were beyond ecstatic by the tour. I can see why @Dan can spend a whole day with @satturn and not get bored. This is definitely a great find!

I always thought that “Things to do in Israel” is referring to activities and attractions, but this is a new twist.

David Citadel opened a new meat restaurant Veranda under what I think is yet another level of Kashrus ‘Chalak Rabbanut Jlem’
