Gan Meir is Hebrew for "Meir Park" and is named after Tel aviv's first mayor, Meir Dizengoff. The park is located between King George Street and Tchernichovsky Street in the centre of Tel Aviv. When you've had enough of the hustle and bustle of Tel Aviv and need to up your green intake and even visit a small lake, pay a visit to Gan Meir.
Gan Meir is a very popular public park that has been open since 1944 and ever since has been enjoyed by people of all ages, as well as their canine companions, who are looking for a break from the urban jungle of Tel Aviv. The beautiful lake is covered with a number of varieties of water lilies and is a balm to the soul in today's fast-paced world. As it happens, Gan Meir was designed to be a miniature model of Israel and the lake represents the Kinneret, the Sea of Galilee.
If you're peckish, you can grab something to eat at one of the many fast food shops in the area around the park, or even from somewhere in the nearby Dizengoff Centre, and eat it al fresco in the peaceful surroundings of Gan Meir.
