The park is shaped like a Star of David, with each of the six triangles representing an area or city: Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa, Galil, Negev, and Center.

They were painted with waterproof paint for resistance to weather conditions. Many of the models include kinetic moving parts such as trains, planes, a soccer game, heavy equipment, boats and much more. Don’t miss it!
