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

Could be a bit crowded, but still - great for a family walk by the river or jogging and cycling. There are also options to rent a segway but I don't recommend because of the many people.

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
