About three million visits to the country's parks, nature reserves, forests and open spaces were made over the holiday, according to estimates by the Nature and Parks Authority (NPA) and JNF/KKL. The numbers included return visits and counted each day of multiple day vacations as a separate visit. Some of the most popular NPA sites were Caesarea, Ein Gedi, Tel Dan, and Massada. According to the JNF, there were record turnouts at Agmon Hahula and the Jordan Park. They also noted that many people chose to take advantage of their new camping grounds and off-road bike paths. NPA noted that 40,000 people visited their new information booths situated near open spaces.
