Basic Information

Eco Park is a municipal park in the city of Hadera. The park was inaugurated in 2017 and covers 72 acres. The park is located in the eastern part of Hadera, in the section between the city center and the Beit Eliezer neighborhood.

Sarig-Waxman Landscape Architecture designed the park. The cornerstone for the park was laid in April 2015. 32 million NIS were invested in the construction.

The park was built according to ecological principles. Thus, it was designed to preserve the surface runoff to reduce irrigation in the park, and cost-effective LED lighting was installed.

The park has play facilities, interactive play facilities, an artificial lake with ornamental fish, an adventurous bike path, and a high vantage point overlooking the park. The park is planted with about 300 citrus trees that characterize Hadera’s past. Admission to the park is free, and you have to pay for the parking on all days of the week.

At the fitness complex, you can find a pull-up bar, dip stations, kettlebells on ropes, a small soccer field with an electronic goalboard, and other gear.

The Lake

From the fitness complex, we headed to the lake. You can see signs prohibiting drinking water from the lake, fishing, swimming, and feeding fish.

We visited on a Saturday morning, and there were many people at most facilities. And as you can see, they continue constructing residential buildings around the park. Thus, in the future, there will be even more people.

In the park, you can find explanation signs. Here is, for example, a sign telling about this land.

Playground

There are two playgrounds at the park – one for younger kids and the second for older children.

It is a lovely playground. But there is no shadow, and there are very few swings.

After spending an hour at the playground, we started to make our way back.

Municipal Parks in the Sharon Area

Here are several municipal parks from the Sharon area:

Also, you can find Big Petah Tikva Park, which is a little to the south.

Summary

Eco Park Hadera is a lovely addition to the Sharon area’s municipal parks (like Raanana Park, Kfar Saba Park, and Hod HaSharon Park). And if you are driving to the north, and your kids can not sit for too long in the car, or you live in this area, then visiting this park can be a good option.
