In order to heighten awareness about the environment and increase participation in outdoor activities, the Israel Nature and Parks Authority has reduced annual park subscription prices for various segments of the population. Young families without or with only one child over the age of 5 will receive a reduction of 18 percent, with the former paying NIS 275 and the latter NIS 374. Students will receive  a reduction of nearly 50%, now paying NIS 144 instead of NIS 268. Meanwhile, senior citizens will on average receive a 35% discount, while soldiers and national service participants will simply pay a nominal fee of NIS 40.

"The INPA sees as one of its main goals the accessibility of sites to as many people as possible, and bringing landscape and heritage closer to each and every one of you," said Shaul Goldstein, executive director of the INPA.

Environmental Protection Minister Amir Peretz welcomed the INPA's decision, adding that it is "the natural right of citizens to enjoy their surroundings."

"We must see to it that the public will benefit from its right to beaches, reserves, parks and nature sites," Peretz said.
