Hello and welcome to "Exploring Israel" series. I enjoy exploring my country by photowalking and photocycling³
Today I want to share with you my trip to the "Menachem Begin Park" in Ramat Gan.
Ramat Gan (Hebrew: רָמַת גַּןor רָמַת־גַּן) is a city in the Tel Aviv District of Israel, located east of the municipality of Tel Aviv and part of the Tel Aviv metropolitan area. It is home to one of the world's major diamond exchanges, and many high-tech industries⁴
The park is named after a former prime minister. It has an area of 1km².
There is a lake in the middle of the park. The lake is of square shape and is used for water skiing.
The towing cable system is installed on the perimeter of the lake. This system allows for continuing water skiing around the lake. Ramps are added for additional challenge.
There are a lot of birds around the lake, this one is an Egyptian goose.
A big playground for the children
There is a small zoo with deer
There are a lot of different trees growing in the park. This is a massive ficus tree with a very impressive root system
Found this interesting palm tree, almost uprooted but clinging to life and thriving #aliveandthriving
This is the only Bottle tree in the park
Olive trees in the middle of the park
Beautiful green paths for walking in the park
A very big, interesting and beautiful park. I enjoyed my visit and will return to continue exploring.
Thank you for reading and your support!
"Exploring home country" vs "Exploring abroad"
"Exploring home country" is somewhat better²
