Now the greenest spot in the south of Tel Aviv, this used to be where the old Ottoman train passed through on its way from Jaffa to Jerusalem and back. The new park is situated between the Neve Tzedek and Florentin neighborhoods, and is a great spot to enjoy a picnic, let the kids play, ride a bike, have a coffee, or a slice of pizza at Eyal Shani’s nearby eatery “Romano”. This is also where the new Elifelet tram station is located, already ready for the light rail trains to pass through it in the coming months.
