Park Hayarkon is a much needed oxygen provider for Tel Aviv. At the heart is the now less polluted Yarkon river (still not swimmable but you can kayak) and all around, great walking / running trails, soccer fields and tons of people walking around, playing, and having a good time. It's much more geared for locals than tourists which for... More

This park has a great potential for being the best walking trail in Tel Aviv. It should be more cared though. However, it is still a great place for jogging, walking, taking your dog for stroll and also for canoeing, light sailing in the river (still not totally cleaned). You can see hondreds of people taking a refuge from everyday... More

Manage your expectations. An oasis of green in an area that is getting quite built up, but not full of manicured flower beds. More rustic.... Nice to be there in the spring when there is colour and some budding. A good place to go with the dog, or for special events, and a meeting point between North Tel Aviv, Ramat... More

Long park along the Yarkon river, starting at the sea. Great for running, cycling, walking, picnics and enjoying nature just minutes away from the big city.

This is the main public park in Tel Aviv. It is very large and is made up of several distinct areas: lawns, shaded areas, river views, sports fields, boating areas, running and biking paths and more. It runs around 5 kilometers from end to end, which makes it a favorite destination for runners. There are also many places to spread... More

The park is just under my apartment so I'm here daily. There are many sports facilities, walking and cycling tracks as well as benches, sights decks and hidden spots. Great for picnics and walks.

In the center of the "big" Tel Aviv, a few minutes drive from the sea. Water activities, bicycles, etc. and all the area is green. I recommend the place also for picnic.

Ha-Yarkon park is fairly big, it runs from east to west over 4 miles, and while there's plenty of fun and activities all over the place it is important to understand which part of it specifically you're planning to visit since it will affect your planning in terms of parking, what to bring with you, how long to spend there...
