'Smart park' coming to Jerusalem's Gan Sacher

A picnic in the park may soon turn into a high-tech affair as Jerusalem's Sacher Park will soon be part of a “smart park” pilot.

In an effort to create the “smartest park in the country,” the Jerusalem Municipality said in statement last week that it was “interested” in installing electric bike-sharing stations, phone charging stations, and free WiFi internet throughout the site.

Energy-saving “smart” lighting and “smart” irrigation systems, which can be controlled remotely, may soon become a park staple, powered by solar light panels.
