The park and the Winter Lake
The rare winter pond is in the southern part of Netanya, east of the sandstone cliff found by the sea shore. Every year, the winter rains flow into the pond area and make a small picturesque lake. The size and life-time of the lake depend on the amount of precipitation each year. During the spring months the “pond” attracts many travelers from all over Israel: nature lovers, painters, photographers, scholars and students. In the small area of the pond, life begins a new each winter: crabs, daphnia and various water insects – as many as 20 species, come to life in the pond’s water. More than 100 eucalyptus trees were planted around the pond in the 19th century and give a special look as they are ideal dwelling place for ravens, herons, crows and ring-necked parakeets.
The park next to the Winter Lake (“the pond”) was initiated by Netanya Municipality as a flagshipproject in collaboration with the Jewish National Fund. In the park there is a games complex, fitness facility and around the lake – hiking trails for walkers and for cyclists.
