Sacher Park (Hebrew: גן סאקר) is the largest public park in the center of Jerusalem, Israel,[1] near the neighborhoods of Kiryat Wolfson, Nachlaot and adjoining the Israel Government Complex.

The park was created in 1963, and named after Harry Sacher, a significant figure in the World Zionist Organization. The park was designed by Yahalom Tzur.[1]
