Bet Shemesh to build Park Yarmuth with lake and more!

This week Iryat Bet Shemesh announced the advancement of the construction of "Park Yarmuth" to be located in between the neighborhoods RBS M3 and RBS G2.

The first level of the park will spread out over 200 dunam of land and will include an ecological lake! The cost just for the first stage will be 30,000,000nis. They claim it will be ready and open with a year.

The park will include a number of section of park equipment appropriate for various ages, each section separated from the others. There will be walking paths and bike paths, which will also connect the two neighborhoods together along with the upcoming RBS H and the shopping/business district being built below as well.. The lake will be based on underground water springs located in the area.

There will be areas of the park designated for picnics and barbecues and will be lit up at night. There will also be an area designated for a communal garden in which residents will be able to get individual small plots to grow vegetables and plants.

The park will also include a section for preserving some of the archaeology in the area. As well, there will be a petting zoo of some sort.

  1. That sounds totally amazing. [I think it should be RBS E, not RBS H, unless you are describing a neighborhood I haven't heard of yet].

  2. H is Heh. I dont like defining the neighborhoods like Gimmel being c. doesnt make sense to me as one is not a translation of the other. Heh and H isnt great either, but in my mind it is better

  3. I am not sure what you mean by "translation." In "רמת בית שמש א'," "א'" is not a name of the neighborhood, it signifies that it is the first in a series of Ramat Beit Shemesh neighborhoods. One can render that in English with the analogous "Ramat Beit Shemesh A," or with the transliterated "Ramat Beit Shemesh Aleph." Both of those options are equally reasonable. Once you get to רמת בית שמש ג, the two reasonable options are Ramat Beit Shemesh C, or Ramat Beit Shemesh Gimmel. And for רמת בית שמש ה, one can likewise do "RBS E" or "RBS Heh." I don't get the idea of calling it RBS H.

  4. Lake based on underground water springs in area.

    Sounds like a mikvah.

    2. I thought BS doesn't have money. Who's paying? $10 million USD

  5. Very nice, I'm sure it will be beautiful. How much does it cost to build a hospital? Build a community center with a library, sports courts pool & other facilities for youth? How much to preserve the natural beauty we already have? How about paving the streets, building schools, a center for senior citizens & disabled youngsters?

  6. yeah, mr. anoymous if the city was doing those which (which they) are, you'd just complain why don't they build any parks.
