New in Rehovot!


Rehovot's municipality has been hard at work redoing the playgrounds in our area. Above is a brand new facility installed in place of what was a really run-down example of neglect. The workers completley dismantled all the old equipment, built the new paths and installed the colorful new stuff. They also put up those sunshades solving a really annoying problem. In summer that colorful plastic is very very hot and not fun to slide down at all. These shades should make the playground more fun to hang around in the hot summer mornings. Also, there is no grass so I imagine that will save the taxpayers money and conserve water. The periphery  of the park is planted with flowersbut that area is fitted with drip irrigation. All in all it looks like a nice deal. One thing still missing - some benches. Hopefully they are on their way!

Playgrounds are so hard to get "right." I'm glad they added the shade - it's probably terribly important.

This looks like a delightful place for the kiddos, hope the benches are on the way.

This looks like a place kids would love to visit! I like the primary colours. Keep your fingers crossed that benches are in the plans. :)

This is gorgeous. A new playground is being put in our "backyard," between us and the shul. It's right near the ramp to the lower ladies section.

they are also placing these parks here in Jerusalem, and they are quite well kept, yet security is still an issue.

Ah, to be young again.

This looks like a wonderful place for a child or child at heart to while away the hours.

They just redid a nearby park after many years of neglect, and it's pretty pathetic esp. compared to some of the other new parks. Enjoy!
