This has all been opened up since I was last in Israel. You could walk for miles and it was great to see they had made such new areas for walking.

Riding a bike, walking, running or barbecuing- Park Hayarkon is the place do do all of the above and much more. We like going there with the kids on Saturdays, doing a breakfast picnic, playing in the playground with them and renting a boat to sail in the lake. The kids loves it. As long as you are not going... More

A really nice and relaxing place, probably one of the best parks to have fun with the family, even in a hot day. The park has a lot to offer for young children and grown ups. If you're visiting in the summer, take with you a lot to drink because the prices in the small kiosks are outraging. When the... More

I was there on a hot June day and there were only 4 other humans I encountered over the course of 90 minutes. Park and walk around the entire area- you can see the pools of water, the tall trees, hear the birds migrating and singing. There are two donkeys near the Ottoman ruins! Very pretty flowers, and make sure... More

We decided to do a little biking while visiting TA. Friendly stand in the park rented us nice bikes. Kind of hot - but trails are 50% shaded. Very flat, well paved trails

The Yarkon park is a lovely place, but stay away from the water. It is not just polluted, it is poisoned. No boating, no nothing, please don't be tempted. I will not get into the sad history here, but heed my warning and don't listen to anyone telling you that things are ok. Everything is always "ok" when it isn't... More

Great place to ride your bike, walk with your family, take the kids, walk the dog, and enjoy the attractions! You can go rock climbing, bungee jumping, trampolining, roller blading, or just lie around and watch the people go by!

Great way to spend your day. The park is very big so It's nice to rent a bike. There are special areas for different kind of sport as well and there is a big lake at the end.
