A bird observatory is to be established in Ganei Yehoshua Park Complex, thanks to JNF Australia.

Bird singing in the heart of the “Non-Stop-City”: In the presence of KKL-JNF World Chairman Efi Stenzler, Tel Aviv-Jaffa’s Mayor Ron Huldai, and the Australian ambassador to Israel Dave Sharma, a cornerstone laying ceremony was held this week for the new bird observatory center that is planned to be built in the ‘Rosh Tzippor’ complex in Ganei Yehoshua.

The ‘Rosh Zippor’ complex is located at the geographical point where the Ayalon and Yarkon River meet.Iit is named ‘Rosh Tzippor’ (bird head) due to its shape of a bird’s head, which can be seen from an aerial view.

The bird observatory will be open and accessible to the general public without fencing, and allow a view of the waterfront. In addition, at the same place a guidance center will open, providing educational activities for children and residents, as well as tutorials regulated public tours.

The Establishment of ‘Rosh Tzippor’ was made possible thanks to the generous donations from the JNF Australia and major donors, the couple Mr. Mark San and Ms. Eva San.

Project cost is $2.3 million. Earthworks have begun on the site, with an estimated project inauguration for 2014.

The Keren Kayemet LeIsrael – Jewish National Fund (KKL-JNF), which gained an extensive experience in the field through its international bird watching site, Lake Hula, will operate the site. The ‘Rosh Tzippor’ center itself will be integrated in a green park that is found in the heart of an urban area, which is under the management company, Ganei Yehoshua of the Tel Aviv municipality the site already includes a bike path, playgrounds, game facilities, picnic tables, and a beautiful observation hill.

KKL-JNF indicated that the new bird observatory will “encourage educational activity that brings people closer to nature.”
