A new water park opened in the city of Ofakim in the western Negev a few weeks ago.

Over NIS 13 million were invested in the establishment of the park, which is located in the municipal country club complex.

The park, the first of its kind in the region, is part of the new summer complex and will include, among other things, five slides, including one with tubes, all imported from abroad (the Dutch iPlay company). Three of the slides are intended for children and the rest for adults.

This park is stacked with amenities

The complex also includes a large summer pool, a toddler pool, a spacious lawn area, seating areas and a mini golf complex adjacent to the park.

The park itself covers an area of about 0.7 hectares (1.7 acres), with the length of the slides ranging from 29 meters in the small slide to 86 meters in the tube slide, and their height ranging from six to eight meters.

The summer complex will be open to subscribers every day of the week, but residents of Ofakim will enjoy discounted prices. For residents coming from outside, the price will more than double.

What is the price of entry?

Children: NIS 100, adults NIS 120. A card of five entries for guests (children or adults) costs NIS 500.

"The park was established as a result of the fact that the country club, which is a leading institution and ambassador of the city of Ofakim, made it a point to encourage and promote the culture of leisure and sports in the city, as well as continue to strengthen the value of family-friendliness with additional activities suitable for all ages," said Ofakim Country Club Manager, Eli Malka.

"The park and the countryside will be a breath of fresh air for the residents of the city and the surrounding area, who until now had to travel long distances to enjoy these types of attractions," he added.

"Our vision is that Ofakim Country Club will be a home for every person who wants to upgrade the quality of their life, health and soul, personal and family, with exclusive leisure and sports activities. The complex has for long been not only a sports complex, but an exclusive sports and leisure culture center, and I call on all residents of Ofakim and the region to come and enjoy!"
