Israel’s list of Accessible Picnic Areas

 
 
A picnic

Access Israel is dedicated to the improvement of accessibility for all disabled individuals.  Our initiatives include the establishment of accessible picnic areas and natural compounds within natural sites across Israel.  A large number of corporations have joined hands with the organization in the establishment of the compounds, often with the active participation of their employees, thereby contributing to increased awareness and commitment to the cause.
