    Many times I was in Tel Aviv, Yarkon Park but went for the first time. Another name for this park-Ganei Yehoshua. The Park is located in the northern part of Tel Aviv's Yarkon River along the coast. The Park is very large. Here you can go boating or pedalo, you can sit out on the Greens or make a picnic, and you can just take a stroll and enjoy the river. Here you can make very beautiful pictures. In the eastern part of the park there are beautiful gardens: Cactus garden, rock garden, one of the garden, tropical garden. The gardens are only open from 9-00 to 14-00, 9-00 to 13-00 from Friday, while Saturday with 10-00 to 15-00. I was in the Park later in the afternoon and, unfortunately, the gardens were closed. Next time I will try to visit them. Also in the Park is the site for sports facilities, playgrounds, picnic areas, special park for dogs. Here everyone will find something interesting.

    All green in the heart of Tel Aviv, while boats travel, romantic couples, loners and outcasts, and townspeople in fitness. And it is the Ussishkin Street., meters and kossowsky Ibn Gabirol, and from. And who is this? For those who do not?

    From where the River joins with the sea, the port of Tel Aviv until the end where you can find attractions like a park of rocks, a balloon, or a mini zoo, the Park is to take it and enjoy it all. It is highly recommended to do so by bike, although if you like walking also is very valid. You can see many people doing various sports or picnics. A gem is picnic day that there is a recital, since there are no walls quite well is heard from outside the venue.
