The Ariel Sharon Park is a unique example of a green slot in the midst of a highly urbanized area, that had been allocated to serve as a reservation for environmental rehabilitation projects.

Once, not many years ago, the Park; then called “Hiriya”, served as the main waste-ground for the center of Israel, a place that had been known to be polluted as well as neglected; a health-hazard for the inhabitants of nearby cities.

In 2005, the late PM, Mr. Ariel Sharon, took the brave decision to vacate the waste-ground to more secure, health-guarded and distant landfills, while turning this piece of land of some 8,000 dunams into a recreational park for the well-being of the public.

The Park offers a network of hiking and bicycle trails, among river-creeks, as well as leisure and recreational activities.

One of the Park’s major activities are the various guided tours (for schools, families and individuals) about the vision and its pragmatic turn-around of how to turn a waste-land into a flourishing environmental place and about the meaning of responsibly for our community.
