Our family went to Yarkon park for a few hours, had a very enjoyable day, lots of children play areas, designated dog areas, small kiosks offering drinks and snacks. There is a very small zoo, and a stretch of river to relax next to. There are go karts, boats with the option of pedlos, row boats or engine powered. Nice... More

The park is easy to reach on foot from the Port. It's a great place to escape from the noise and bustle of the city. There are lots of sports facilities, playgrounds for children and a path that, I believe, is part of the Israel National Trail. It's also a great place to cycle. Also a great place for a... More

The park itself is beautiful. The rocks garden is interesting and at spring time with the flowers it's gorgeous. You completely forget that you're in the busiest city in Israel. The only reason it got 3 stars instead of 5 is the zoo. The animals are sad and bored and there's no need for it there. Very depressing place.

It is the largest park in Tel Aviv. There is a lot of entertainment options. Can ride boats on the lake. Travel by train. Kayaking....and more. Sports facilities and children's play facilities scattered throughout the park. The park is located just opposite the largest amusement park in Tel Aviv. Even the ice rink can be reached in a 5-minute walk.... More

This park is nice to ride in or to have a boat ride on the small lake with kids, the nice cable balloon flight will give you a perspective of the city. It is not "central park" and you must take a baseball cup to get some shade.... across the street from it you can take the kids to the... More

Take some time walking along the yarkon taking in passer bys and get a feel for the daily life of many israelites.
