The Project

AIRPLANE PARK IN KIRYAT SHMONA

Jewish National Fund of Edmonton (JNF) invites you to help support the expansion of Airplane Park in Kiryat Shmona, Israel’s northernmost city. Right in the heart of the Galilee Panhandle, and the Hula Valley, the Airplane Park project is an example of what JNF does best, creating fantastic green spaces to support and enhance the quality of life for the residents of Kiryat Shmona and surrounding communities.

This new park spreads across 19 acres, providing bicycle and walking trails, seating and picnic areas along the Nahal Ayun streambed that leads to various wading pools.

Kiryat Shmona lacks the resources to develop beautiful amenities like Airplane Park. Given the significant child poverty rate in the area, this special needs accessible park will provide much needed recreational space for underprivileged youth and families.

With your generosity, we will further develop this important park and make it a source of enjoyment for all.

HELP US BUILD THE FOUNDATION FOR ISRAEL’S FUTURE!
