Our starting point is the promenades and gardens that stretch out along the sandstone cliffs by the shore. Breathe in the fresh salty air as we continue towards the Iris Reserve in the southern part of the city, which features hundreds of argaman (purple) irises (Iris atropurpurea) that bloom in February and March. Across the road is a winter pond surrounded by eucalyptus trees where water fowl spend the winter. The Winter Pond Park is made entirely from wood, and includes entertainment and sports facilities for children. From there we can continue to the Poleg reserve and Poleg River, and end the tour in Park Yakum, which offers many family activities.
