Ein Hemed also known as Aqua Bella is a beautiful national park just outside Jerusalem. The park has a stream running through it, a large playground area for toddlers (accessible by wheelchair and stroller), and many shady spots to enjoy a mangal (BBQ) or a quiet afternoon. There is also a two story Crusader House in the park. This is a piece of Eden just 10 minutes outside Jerusalem. Make sure to come and see the flowing water cascading down the rocks right after a large rainfall.
During the year Ein Hemed offers children’s festivals including a Circus Festival during Succot, a Children’s Fairytale Festival on Pesach and a Shavuot Festival. The festivals are run very well with activities and shows for kids.
