About the project

The Mama Betty Park and Sports Center in memory of Bracha Goldstein is the result of a complete redesign of the Bracha Goldstein Memorial Park by landscape architect Ram Eizenberg, increasing the park from 4.5 dunams to 5 dunams. The Park has been redesigned as an”Open Air Community Center” catering to all age groups , and providing the Patt neighborhood community with a state of the art park offering a variety of activities.
For chess and draughts lovers there are stone chess board tables, to play on, for young children an adventure playground with brightly coloured play equipment embedded in a safe rubber paving, and of course, the obligatory sand pit! The plaque in the play area is dedicated in memory of Dolphi (Avram) Goldstein-Goren for his dedication to children. For teens and youths there’s a multipurpose sports field, and a service building that is equipped with a film projection room.
The well designed sloping lawns provide the ideal space for a mini amphitheater complete with paved stage. The park also has plenty of shady areas, some created natually by the addition of trees and shrubs, and some by strategically placed pergolas. Benches can be found throughout the park including the wooden tables and benches in the picnic area.
There is also a corner of the park reserved for fallen soldiers of the neighborhood, their names are inscribed in stone, it is here that the residents hold the annual Rememberance Day Ceremony for those who died serving their country .
This is most certainly, a unique neighborhood park, hailing the begining of a new era of community parks .

The original park was created in 1981, and called the Bracha Goldstein Centenary Memorial Garden and Sports Ground. In 1992 it underwent extensive renovations, with the resurfacing of the sports courts, new playground equipment, and a new irrigation system along with additional trees and shrubs.
