The park is based north to Netanya and south of Haifa.
It is one of the few streams in Israel that is filled with water throughout year round.
The park has undergone a thorough restoration program, of recent, and has proven to be reoffering a natural habitat for a varied number of species.
One of the major species’ populations of the park is the softshelled-turtles, to be mostly found near the “Turtles-bridge”.
This is also the best watch-out point at which one can see the baby-turtles sun-bathing on rocks…
Turtles can reach up to 50 Kilograms and usually hunt fish.
Other populations in the park are Nutria; swamp-turtles; catfish; eels and others….
Another optional path is to set west-bound along a unique path (adaptable to baby-cart or wheelchairs) on a longer route towards the end of the reservation.
The park offers many recreational niches with picnic areas, too.
The entrance to the park is free.
There are two main entrances:
The western one- coming from Tel-Aviv:
Drive on road number 2 towards Haifa; exit at “Bei-Yannay” junction; turn left over the bridge; turn right into “Michmoret”.
After crossing a bridge the road down will lead directly to the Park.
The eastern one– coming from Tel-Aviv:
Drive on road number 4 north bound. Turn left in “Ha-Ogen” junction, at the T-section turn right towards Kibbutz “Maabarot”. Before the entrance to the Kibbutz turn right into the parking lot.
