“Sea Park” is the centrepiece of Ashkelon’s beach development. This new 5 hectare coastal park was developed as a vivid public space on the waterfront, which includes recreation areas, unique extreme sports attractions, special playgrounds, restaurants and a new promenade. The existing derelict landscape was turned into an intriguing piece of nature in the form of a unique hill park, by the creation of new and artificial dunes bound solely by local natural vegetation. The dunes use biodiversity as a major tool in the formation of a new super nature on the beach.
The project is the first implementation stage of the larger Ashkelon Waterfront Strategic Plan. The design process began in 2015 and construction ended in 2017.
