Charles Clore Garden
Time Out says
Charles Clore Garden is a 30 acre seaside park that is perfect for couples, families and anyone who likes a good old barbecue.
The Charles Clore Garden perfectly complements Tel Aviv’s shoreline. After undergoing a two-year renovation, this seaside park has it all. The green lawns juxtaposed with the sand and sea make it a beautiful place to spend an afternoon. Spread over 30 acres, the park, named after the British Jewish philanthropist who originally established it in the 1970s, is located just south of the Dolphinarium and stretches until Jaffa. It also makes for the perfect getaway for beach-going families who are sick of the sand or matkot (lethal Israeli beach game involving paddles and speeding balls). The park has a great playground apparatus that includes a rope pyramid and has fountains that jet forth from the concrete that kids – and adults – love to dart around in. While the kids are splashing around, Mom and Dad can also exercise at the yoga platform or on one of the “machines” in the outdoor gym. The park is also decked out with barbecue areas. If you fancy injecting a little culture into the day have a wander round the park’s sculpture garden which includes work by renowned Israeli artist and sculptor, Ilana Goor. Alternatively, you can always pay a visit to The Etzel Museum located in the south area of the park near Alma beach. The museum features one of the three military organizations that led Israel to independence.
