Tel Aviv has officially launched its 100th birthday celebrations, and the managers of the city's Ganei Yehoshua (Park HaYarkon) are inviting the public to visit the giant park and its attractions for free during the current Passover vacation, reports www.local.co.il. Among the park's special attractions are the 40-dunam Boulder Garden, containing rocks from around Israel from as far away as Mount Hermon and Eilat; the Cactus Garden, containing 3,700 cactuses, some of them rare species; and the 20-dunam Tropical Garden, containing a tropical jungle and one of the biggest orchid hothouses in Israel. The report said that with the recent completion of the East Yarkon Park and the paving of pedestrian and bicycle paths, visitors can now walk or ride there from the sea. Sporting and playground equipment, including equipment for the disabled, has been placed alongside the paths.
