An amazing green area where to walk and enjoy nature: lots of birds! People doing jogging, sailong in the river, sitting on the grass... nice to spend a warm morning

Safe and scenic, great place for a Shabbat morning hike with friends or family. Easy walking with safe, well maintained paths. You will see some small water bodies with lily pads and rocks - very pretty. Wear sunblock and a hat as you will be in direct sun for much of the time on a sunny day. Not much shade.... More

Before I will start: Do you know the song : "GREEN FIELDS" by the Brothers Four ? This is exactly what has happened to the yarkon river.

Bike, row, jog, or stroll along the Yarkon river on the north or south side from the Metzizim beach all the way back to Ganei Yehoshua and Ramat Gan. There's a water park, rental jeeps for kids, and tons of playgrounds and dog runs. I could go to this park every day.

This must be the center of the outdoor activities in Tel Aviv. This place is crowded all day long, starting at 6am, packed with all sort runners training, cyclers, walkers, you named it. Treatlets, iron men, Merton, they are all there. Later on, families will arrive for picnics, and for fun. There is a nice climbing wall and fitness center.... More

You can come with your kids and see the very small zoo or go to the birds park. You can run here, in the trees shade. You can play soccer or basketball or just walk and relax. Safe and clean.
