If you have small children and are looking for a safe but fun outdoor activity, then Eretz Haegozim (Land of Nuts) is a great option. Located on Moshav Bnei Atarot (not far from Ben Gurion Airport, just off road 40 by the Hatayasim Junction), Eretz Haegozim offers visitors a safe location to be at one with nature. The park, which was started more than 40 years ago by one of the moshav families, is filled with enormous pecan trees. Entrance costs NIS 25 a person over three, but the fee is well worth it. There are plenty of activities to keep the children busy nearly all day. Upon arrival visitors are given a small green sack and are invited to gather as many pecans as they fancy. If one wants to take the nuts home with them then they are charged by the kilo; however while at the park, nut lovers can eat as much as they want. Around the park, there are stations with wooden blocks to crack open the pecans and eat them on the spot. As well as the sack, patrons are given a large straw mat to place on the ground and enjoy a daylong picnic. Numerous hammocks are strung up between the tall pecan trees, and adults can lounge around in the sun while the children play. It is the perfect environment for pre-schoolers because the park is fenced in and almost every corner is in sight. The kids can wander off but can't get lost. There are large wooden checkers boards around the park, a pita-making station, arts and craft tables as well as a variety of activities such as clowns and other children's performers that visit the park each Saturday afternoon. Open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For further information, check out the website www.egozim.co.il or call (052) 896-0 6833.
