The Irises are blooming

The Iris reserve is south of the city, close to the beach, and is one of only two places in Israel where you can still see the colorful bloom of rare and impressive flowers that grow in Israel. The irises bloom in February – March and attract visitors from around the country who come to see them in bloom. The area has mainly sandy paths and one can see not only the irises (which are deep purple in colour) but also occasional red Calaniot – the national flower of Israel.  Walking is allowed on the marked paths only.  Motor vehicles are prohibited in the reserves.  The reserve can be accessed from Ben Gurion Boulevard, or the pedestrian bridge near to the Winter Park.    This year, there are:

✔ More marked trails
✔ More explanatory signs
✔ More guided tours

Netanya Municipality works hard to preserve and enhance this reserve to ensure the survival of one of the rare flowers that grow in Israel.
