A hidden gem. Very special reservation. There is a mid range entrance fee. Worth it in value for money. A big area for picnic. A hike path suitable for young children. Very clean and widespread park. A lot of species.

Nice walk under sun. Funny for kids and for families if you plan a picnic. Plenty of space to relax and eat. Convenient price. If you visit Israel better to visit Haifa and Akka

This nature reserve is nice for families and couples. It has a walking route which illustrates how the area was hundreds of years ago. The best time to visit there is during fall and spring.

Very beautiful place cumfy to walk with a stroller and little kids. Great way to enjoy nature and to watch animals. Part of the trip is on a deck above water it's fun and safe.

We really enjoyed visiting En Afek, it is close to city but still looks like hidden paradise. Don't forget the sunscreen!

We have been in a really hot day and all we wanted was to get into the water (not allowed). A nice walk between ponds and on wooden bridges, not a mouth dropping.

En afek is just one of many such reserves in Israel and well worth a visit. Stunningly beautifulwild landscape with flora and fauna for those budding environmentalists. It is a relaxing and stimulating attraction and deserves a visit

A small nature reserve near Qiryat Bialik, a city north of Haifa. Very calm and quiet. Unique wooden bridge to walk over the surface of the main big swamp. The children really enjoyed this !! Nice view from the roof of the restored flour mill....More
