The map above does not have scale. According to Google satellite images, the park’s size (not including area #17) is 230×220 meters. Hence, it is not very big, and you can reach almost any point in the park within a five-minute walk.

Parking

There is a free parking lot by the entrance.

Opening Hours

According to Google, the park is open daily from 08:00 to 20:00. Still, during our visit in March 2024, at 16:40, the guard told everybody that the park was going to close at 17:00. After rechecking the Rehovot municipal site, I found that there are summer and winter opening hours.

Summer Opening Hours (April – end of summer*)
Sunday – Saturday: 8:00 – 20:00

(*) It is not clear what is meant by the end of summer. Since the opening hours were recently modified due to requests, there is a good chance they will be changed again.

Winter Opening Hours
Sunday – Saturday: 9:00 – 17:00

Entrance Fee

Free.

Barbeque and Starting Fire

Signs stating what is forbidden in the park are posted by the entrance. For example, starting a fire or having a barbeque is prohibited in the park.

Among other restrictions are the following: entering with bicycles, sound systems, and party decorations (like balloons) is forbidden. Also, dogs must be on a leash and muzzled in the park.

Though barbecue is forbidden, there are many picnic tables. And many of them are in the shade.

Ecological Pool

When entering the park, you will see that almost everything is to your left. And if you turn to your right, you can walk around the park. There is a loop trail, and its length is 1.5 km.

After a short walk, you will see vending machines (#3 on the map) and a lovely building (#16). This building is closed, but a coffee shop will be open in the future. Behind that building, you can see the ecological pool.

Entering the water and feeding the fish is prohibited.

There is also a small ecological pool for fish (#9), and near it, you can visit the viewpoint (#10). Here are several photos:

Animal Corner

Near the big ecological pool, you can visit a small animal corner (#13). In the animal corner, you can see parrots and chickens. Many peacocks wander in this area. Here are several photos from this area:

Children Playgrounds

There are two playgrounds in the park. There is a playground for small kids (#8) and a playground for older kids (#5). Here are several photos of the small kid’s playground:

There are many fruit trees and flowers in the park. However, according to signs, the fruits are unfit for food, and picking is forbidden.

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

Rehovot Citrus Park is a lovely place for families. You can have a picnic and spend several hours with your kids.

In the previous section, I listed parks from the Sharon area. Rehovot Citrus Park resembles those municipal parks, but I would prefer Raanana Park or Kfar Saba Park since they are bigger and have more variety and attractions.
