The Doris Weiler Garden is a large park set within steep hills near several large apartment buildings in the Ramat Eshkol neighborhood. The park was designed by Lepa Yahalom and Dan Tzur to include lawns, play equipment and the preserved Eshkolot (Bunches of Grapes) burial cave. The cave, discovered in 1897 and cleaned between 1974-76, was the burial site of a prosperous Jerusalem family in the 1st Century, and is one of many burial caves in the area of Ramat Eshkol and Sanhedria that are part of a large necropolis that surrounded Jerusalem in the Second Temple Period (2nd Century BCE - 1st Century CE).
