?Who are we
In the midst of orange groves planted by early settlers and adjacent to an orange packing plant from the time of the Turkish rule in Israel, 'Shvil Hatapuzim' was born in 1997.
Borrowing from Nahum Gutman’s style and book 'Shvil Klipot Hatapuzim' the founders created a park born out of love for nature and children. The activities and attractions of the park have been hand-crafted by the builders with special attention to preserving the park’s natural beauty and its environment.
'Shvil Hatapuzim' is an ongoing project, constantly evolving creatively. We invite you to enjoy this adventure where the principle of respect for nature and for the people within it dominates.
