Jerusalem wins design award for park

The Jerusalem Municipality won an award for the design and construction of the Railroad Park on Wednesday. The award, from the “Urban Design” category, was presented at the 2013 Israel Annual Conference of Architecture and Design.
“This award reflects the great importance we consider in investing in the quality of life in the city, young families and green gardens,” said Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat.
“The Railroad Park reflects the special texture of Jerusalem — connecting different neighborhoods, between different sectors, old and new, between the past and future.”
