Park Hamayanot is located within the larger park of Gan Hashlosha on the foot of Mt. Gilboa. The parking lot is past Gan Hashlosha waterpark.
Park Hamayanot came about as a way of preserving the flora and fauna of the region since much of it was destroyed by visitors coming to swim in the natural springs. The park includes 15 km of paved roads leading to springs whose water flows from an agricultural area. The landscape was minimally touched in order to provide a genuine nature experience. The main springs in the park are Ein Homa, Ein Migdal and Nahal Kibutzim.
We visited the park on a warm winter day. We rented a golf cart and drove through the park. We stopped by the spring and dipped our feet in. The views were magnificent and the park was nice and peaceful. When we rented the golf cart the woman mentioned that in one of the springs the fish give pedicures. They come to nibble at the dead skin on visitor’s feet. When I tried it no fish came, but it was an extremely enjoyable day nonetheless.
