The Yarkon Park

The great outdoors is only a few minutes’ drive from downtown Tel Aviv and a 20-minute bus ride from Hotel Gilgal on nus line number 5. Stretching for hundreds of acres along the tranquil Yarkon River, the park has hidden beauty spots where you would never believe the busy city is so close.

At the park, you will find special gardens, such as the Tropical garden and Rock Garden as well as beautiful trails interspersed with some 3,500 species of plants, including over six acres of cacti, many of them beautifully flowering. One trail leads to a scenic view of the Yarkon Park’s lake. Around the corner from the Tropical Garden is a bike-rental center.
