As the city of Beit Shemesh continues to grow in both size and population and new people move into new neighborhoods, older neighborhoods have become neglected. Keren Shemesh has taken on the double challenge of both replacing older playgrounds (some originally built in the seventies) with new up to date playgrounds that meet modern safety standards and regulations and building new modern playgrounds in areas where there are none.Due to the changing population more younger families are moving in and are in desperate need of such facilities. Keren Shemesh has also installed new, updated and modern sports fields in some of the older schools in the city. We are proud to say that in the past five years we have built 11 New playgrounds for the enjoyment and benefit of children of Beit Shemesh. Today, we are looking for donors to partner with us and to continue to develop playgrounds and sports facilities throughout the city. There are still many areas which lack up to date playground facilities, especially newer areas containing mostly young families.
