In the fifties, the KKL planted trees in what is now known as Yeruham Lake Park, located west of the town of Yeruham. In the eighties more trees were added around the lake as well as lawns and a playground. The manmade lake is located in the center of the park. The intention was to use the water for agricultural use but when that failed the site turned into a cesspool due to water from nearby oxidation pools leaking into it. In the early nineties the Yeruham Lake Park was revived with the help of an effluent recycling plant that was constructed on the outskirts of the city of Yeruham. Nowadays, after years of neglect, it is finally a pleasure to visit this manmade lake and the green groves surrounding it. When visiting down south, make sure to take time to visit this out of the way oasis in the hills of the northern Negev. There are picnic tables around the lake and overnight camping sites in the park.
address: from highway 40, turn east at HaNegev Junction to highway 224, turn west and then south as the Dimona Junction to highway 204.

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year.
For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
