Jerusalem Biblical Zoo to expand, elephants rejoiceby harry • April 16 2008
Municipal news, Things to do
The Jerusalem Municipal Planning Committee has unanimously approved plans for an expansion of The Tisch Family Zoological Garden (we like to call it the Biblical Zoo - less time consuming) from 250,000 square meters to over 390,000 square meters.
The Biblical Zoo for three years running has been the most popular tourist site in Israel in 2007, with almost 700,000 visitors last year. It is one of the few places in Jerusalem where you don't actually feel like you are in Jerusalem. It's quaint, spread out, generally quiet and immaculately clean.
Jerusalemite welcomes this investment in one of Jerusalem's greatest assets.
