Morris Kaufman Recreation Area for the Blind
In the Ben Shemen Forest, which is the largest forest in Central Israel, there is a Recreation Area for the Visually Challenged, which is a park designed for people who are visually impaired. The path has tactile paving and chain railing to guide visitors among the scented herbs and fruit trees. Based on themes of the forest and ancient agriculture, the path features relief maps and signs in Braille, English and Hebrew. Relief drawings describe the flora and archeological findings discovered there, including a wine press, a cistern, and storage caves.
