Sara Reichenbach Manor Here to post a hearty recommendation for Park Canada. 15 years in this country and somehow had never visited. We took our 3 and 5yo boys to the area near the lake (only a small part of the park) and spent hours walking/jumping/splashing uphill alongside the creek. kids pretended to fish in the stream (threw rocks in the stream, put their dinos in the stream, fell in the stream with glee), climbed up low waterfalls, crawled into the man-made cave, climbed trees, etc. kalaniot and shkediot were blooming. saw lots of wild asparagus. next time we’ll wear rain boots.

Ayalon Canada Park is named after the Ayalon Valley that lies at its feet, and in recognition of the contribution for its development from friends of JNF Canada.

Special sites in the park: Ayalon Springs, the Maayanot Valley, the Ayub Well, Tel Ayalon, the Date Palm Spring, the Scenic Lookout Hill, Eked Antiquities, the Jordanian Burma Road, Emmaus Church, the Olive Tree Recreation Area, Roman Bathhouse.

Facilities: Picinic area, Lookout, Marked path, Archeological or Historic site, Easy access (close to road).

Additional Sites in the Vicinity: Yitzhak Rabin Park (Burma Road, Jeep Road, Command Post Road), Latrun Fortress, Latrun Monastery (Armored Corps Museum), Tzora Forest Sculpture Road (Hanassi Forest), Neve Ilan College Forest.

How do you get there?

From Jerusalem, near the Paz gas station at the Shaar Hagai Interchange.

Access to the main site in the Maayanot Valley and the groves of Tel Ayalon: From the Jerusalem – Tel Aviv Highway turn toward Mevo Horon and Ramallah at Latrun Junction (Highway 3). Ayalon Park is on the right and on the left of the highway about one kilometer after the junction.
