With different recreation areas and trails, this large park makes for a peaceful, relaxing day.
The city's "green lung."
To get here, walk north from downtown, and come for a relaxing time-out or a whole day - more than 350 hectares (865 acres) makes this park one of the world's largest, with countless strolling and activity options. Walking through its half-dozen gardens is a good way to familiarise yourself with the country's flora and geology. Other features of the park include the old Ottoman Tel Afek fortress, the Yarkon River, and a tropical garden with a small lake amid palm trees, wonderful for getting lost in one of the city's favourite places.
