This historic park has gone through many different incarnations. In the 30s, it was Tel Aviv's small answer to Hyde Park -- at that time the real estate on Tschernokovsky Street facing the park was quite expensive.
Over the years, the park and the street went downhill, but in the past 10-15 years they have gone back up again, in part help by the municipality donating an old building in the park for a GLBT center. And where there are gays, there is upkeep!
The cafe in the center is owned by a vetern coffee shop chain, good local style coffee and eats, not cookie cutter Starbucks (whom we drove out of town), thank you very much. Saturday is family day and the cafe and park is overrun with the mixed bag of families that make Tel Aviv what it is.
Oh, and the complaints about the scent of dog, well, doo? Thats because one section of is the first, but now not last, dog park in Israel!
You wanna see how us locals live? Stroll around the park. It's a couple of blocks from the Dizengoff Center Mall, which is, well, just a mall.
