HaBsor National Park (Eshkol Park)
To schedule your visit, please login to the Natural Parks and Nature Reserves Website and use their online booking system.
HaBsor Stream: On the banks of HaBsor Stream stretches one of Israel’s largest streams, exiting Eshkol Park, which is mostly man-made (KKL -JNF, the Natural Parks and Nature Reserves Authority and Merchavim Regional Council all partner in the development and operation of the park).
The Park – A lush, green focal point for those touring the Northern Negev region. Each season “paints” the park and its surroundings in different hues and shades, and from February-March the entire area is dyed in “anemone ruby” – a breathtaking sight that beckons us to leave our homes, go out to nature and rejoice in these ‘blossoms’.
The park entrance – West of Ofakim. You can reach the park from Yad Mordechai Junction, Magen Junction, and Gilat Junction.
The springs burst out of the ground in several locations, and the water is collected into a series of artificial reservoirs and plunge pools in the park’s center. In addition, children’s playgrounds have been placed for travelers’ pleasure.
The park and its surroundings offer diverse entertainment options. Climbing the birdcage and walking along the springs is suitable for everyone. Of course, one can choose to hike longer distances.
The park also offers vast spaces, lawns and many shaded nooks. It borders various walking paths, roads and bike trails. You may spend the night in the park or in one of the inns in the surrounding area.
