Located in Neve Tzedek (next to Beit Lieber), Park Hamesila connects Pines Street with Elifelet Street. The park will extend 1.3 km from the sea to Nahalat Binyamin and Herzl streets downtown when the eastern section opens in the new year. It will provide a missing link in Bauhaus’s network of pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly boulevards.
Like its seven-kilometer-long twin in the capital, Train Track Park incorporates elements from the historic Jaffa-Jerusalem railroad. It is extensively landscaped with a bicycle path, hiking trails, trees, and vegetation. It was the first train in Ottoman-ruled Palestine when it was inaugurs Société du Chemin de Fer Ottoman de Jaffa à Jérusalem et Prolongements. (The fi, like its seven-kilometer-long twin in the capital train in the Middle East, was built in Egypt in 1854.)1854.) Beautiful new park in Tel Aviv.
There are a lot of benches and a lot of comfortable places to sit and relax in the sun. There are also several main streets that run parallel to it, so it’s very close to many places where you can shop or eat. It’s also perfect for a family picnic.
The Turkish railroad approached Jerusalem from a flat valley, but it was cut into the ground east of Jaffa as it passed through orange groves. Those preserved embankments give the newly created park its character. They also separate pedestrians from vehicles. Neve Tzedek was built in 1897, while Tel Aviv wasn’t established until 1909.
The park is beautiful. It’s parallel to some main streets, so it’s close to many shops and places to eat. There are a lot of benches and comfortable spots to sit down and relax in the sun. A pleasant place to have a family picnic, too.
