Tourist tip #11 / Gan Meir
This tranquil oasis in the center of town boasts an impressive number of offerings for such a small space, attracting families and restless pets, and serving as the center of Tel Aviv’s thriving gay and lesbian community.
Tel Aviv is blessed with lots of green spaces, from tree-lined boulevards to the sprawling Hayarkon Park in the north. If you fancy a break in the center of town, head to Gan Meir (“gan” being the Hebrew word for garden). This mini-oasis featuring towering trees, rock-lined paths and a water-lily pond is located between bustling King George St. and Tchernichovsky St.
