Sunday – The Jerusalem Municipality approved a plan to invest in and upgrade the Jerusalem Deer Sanctuary  in Deer Valley (near the Pot Junction), and to turn it into the first city-based nature park in Israel. The park will cover an area of over 60 acres.

New deers will be brought into the existing sanctuary, and the park will now also have a section for people which will include a bicycle path, bird watching terraces, and a reception and education center. There will also build a water reservoir.

The first part of the new park is expected to be completed in January 2014.

Mayor Nir Barkat said this will turn Jerusalem into a “green” city and inprove the standard of living of the residents.
