Kids granted free entry to national parks for 3 months

The Nature and Parks Authority in conjunction with the 60th anniversary celebration staff in MK Ruhama Avraham Balili's office announced Wednesday that all children under the age of 18 will be granted free entry into the national parks starting on Independence Day for three months until July 31, 2008. The waiving of entrance fees includes children participating on family trips and not just school excursions. However, the cable car and the show at Masada, the Euphoria performance at Hula, the presenters at the Caesaria port and entry into the Gan Hashlosha (hasahne) and Harod Spring parks are not included in the deal.
