Charles Clore Park, Tel Aviv


 

The Charles Clore Park, stretching along the southern Tel Aviv coast to Jaffa, was established in the 1970’s through the generosity of Sir Charles Clore. It has been a popular and prominent Tel Aviv landmark for decades.   The park was upgraded recently with the Foundation’s support, through the Tel Aviv Foundation, in honour of the city’s centenary. It was dedicated in November 2009, in the presence of the British Ambassador Mr. Tom Phillips, Mr Isaac Herzog, Minister of Social Affairs and Social Services, the Chairman and Trustees of the Clore Israel Foundation and Mayor Ron Huldai. The upgraded park includes designated areas for barbecues, a dry water-jet, outdoor exercise facilities, children’s playground facilities and a “yoga deck” made of durable wood, with an impressive view to the sea. New lighting fixtures make the park safer, and allow for it’s use after dark – in fact it is full of activity until late in the evening, and the various facilities are very popular. Cyclists, people walking their dogs and joggers are everywhere, and entire families enjoy the play areas.
