I love Ra'anana park, but the fees kept me and my kids away. If they are worried about BBQ's and mess, do what they do at other parks near me: put up a sign barring the smokies and have guards to enforce the litter bans. On Yom Ha'atzmaut at the Winter pond in Netanya, they gave out garbage bags. They will find the money for cleaning as other cities have had to for their parks. Ra'anana to my knowledge has no budget deficit.
