If you are traveling through the Beit shean valley with kids 3-12 I highly recommend stopping at the new “park eucalyptus” aka park kk”l Switzerland in beit shean. The playground is fully shaded, but for kids 3+, there is no toddler area. There are places to sit and picnic (tables) not shaded, and the water splash pad runs from 17:00 till 21:15, and there are semi shaded benches for parents to watch. If you go at night bring insect repellent, the Mosquitos are very numerous. We had a wonderful time. We brought our own food but many many people bought pizza from across the street. It’s very easy to get to by waze it’s called פארק קק״ל בית שאן It’s FREE!!! (August 2015) Image courtesy of Becky Algarissi
Park Eucalyptus is located in Shchunat Eliyahu, it’s the second main road in the city. If you come in from No. 90, turn left at the second roundabout and drive down the road till you hit a huge roundabout and it’s on your left….There is a fun playground and of course lots of water fun.
Note: Closed on Sundays. Water operates from 17:00-21:15.
