Rehovot Off The Beaten Path: 4 reviews and 7 photos
East of Rehovot there is a small nature reserve called the "Rehovot Pond Reserve" (in Hebrew: "Shmurat Breichat Rehovot"). The locals simply call it the "Bassa": the swamp.
This is a seasonal swamp, covered by water only during the rainy season. The typical swamp flora, however, exists throughout the year.
The swamp is created by rainwater trapped between the basins of Wadi Soreq and Wadi Ayalon. It's a nice nature walk from Rehovot to do in the winter or spring.
