Description It looks like a cactus
Caption This marble cactus is one of several sculptures by an artist who avoids easy choices and instead explores new styles and ideas with each piece. That is a compliment!

Park Dina is an ecological garden created in memory of Dina Manheim (1951 - 2006). The park is a private collection of over 100 kinds of trees including about 40 varieties of fruit trees that provide a rich environment for people and birds all year around.

The park was established by the Manheim family, living and farming in Arsuf since 1935 (today - Arsuf Kedem).
In addition to the botanical collection at Park Dina, sculpture and earth works have been installed in the Green Gallery, with some exhibits placed among the trees and others in the surrounding landscape. Visitors are treated to both botanical and artistic exhibits in a welcoming environment. Directed visits to the park can be arranged by calling  052-352-5366.
