Political infighting leaves oversight of Jerusalem’s only urban park in question

Less than one year after it opened to the public, the future of Jerusalem’s Gazelle Valley Urban Wildlife Park, the country’s first urban nature park, may be in jeopardy due to political infighting at the municipality over issuing a tender for its ongoing management.

Located between the neighborhoods of Katamonim and Givat Mordechai, the park features five ponds, two streams, bird-watching areas, a man-made island accessible by wooden bridges, and dozens of wild gazelles roaming free on over 25 hectares.
