Gan Meir Review
You're virtually guaranteed a traffic jam on this section of King George Street not far from Dizengoff Center, but you can get a respite by sitting on one of Gan Meir's benches, shaded by beautiful old trees. The first trees were planted in 1936 when the city offered to name the park after its first mayor, Meir Dizengoff, in honor of his 70th birthday. The feisty Dizengoff objected, so the park only got its official name in 1944, years after he passed away. There's a large playground for kids and an enclosed dog run.
