Kid Friendly Activities in Tel Aviv

Park Hayarkon

The “Central Park” of Tel Aviv,  Park Hayarkon stretches through North Tel Aviv, all the way down to the seashore.

It’s perfect for picnics, sports activities, outdoor parties, or a family boat trip down the stream. The eastern part offers pure greenness and nature, the northern section has a modern sports center with a climbing wall, basketball courts, plus trampolines for those who are in a jumpy mood! Family bike rentals are available, and you can even hire a kayak to row yourself a ride down the river.

Nachalat Binyamin Market

Parallel to Shuk Ha’Carmel, the main market of Tel Aviv, awaits for you the Nachalat Binyamin Arts and Crafts Market.

There’s only one rule: the sales people are allowed to offer only crafts they created with their own hands. Every Tuesday and Friday, counters are lined up along Nachalat Binyamin selling home decorations, jewelry, crafted soaps, and so much more, while fortune tellers, mime artists and street performers amuse the little ones while mom and dad are spending their well-deserved shopping time.

Hatachana Train Station

Just between Tel Aviv and Jaffa, Hatachana, this old train stop built by the Brits was the first train station ever in the Middle East. After it had been abandoned for decades it recently re-opened as an entertainment and cultural centre, also open on Shabbat.

Enjoy the many possibilities this unusual park has to offer, it’s certainly the cherry on the top for kids friendly activities in Tel Aviv; shop in local designer stores, sip some freshly-squeezed orange juice in one of the cafes, have a fab meal at one of the many restaurants, and join the crowd a the organic markets, fairs and events arranged at this spot by the city hall and many other organizations.

The Luna Park

Tel Aviv’s amusement park is waiting for the adventurous families in Ganai HaTaarucha. Go crazy on the rollercoaster, experience the chills in the House of Horrors, and admire the sight of Tel Aviv from the big wheel.

A visit to the Luna Park is an opportunity for the whole family – mom, dad and even grandma and grandpa – to experience together the atmosphere of freedom and liberation of childhood once again. And the best part? You can use all of the rides with one ticket, without any limitations.

A bit of Culture for Morning and Afternoon

Dyada is a Children’s Center in Tel Aviv that offers a wide selection of children’s classes throughout the day, and it has children- and baby-friendly restaurant-café (not that most cafés would not welcome children). Dyada is a great place to start the family-fun day; the kids can socialize and learn in an easy and fun way, while mama and papa can sit down for a peaceful breakfast. When it’s time for the afternoon activity, the Planetarium in Erez Israel Museum can be a fascinating experience for the whole family, offering a remarkable flight through the galaxies.
