Ten Reasons Why I Love Modiin

Modiin is an amazing city, I have lived here since 2005. I have written 10 reasons why I love living in Modiin.

When walking through Modiin you will be dazzled by the beauty of so many green parks. Anabe park is a very large park, situated close to the town center. This remarkable park has a large lake, an amphitheater for concerts and an adventure playground. Anabe Park also has a very spacious dog park, and numerous outdoor areas with exercise machines for keeping fit. Menachem Begin Boulevard is famous for its sport parks. I will write about each park in the future and photograph their beauty.  I was born and grew up in London so green parks are very important to me.
