The Summit Park was created on the top of the hill of Old Jaffa. It affords the best views of Tel-Aviv: the Mediterranean, the beaches, the promenade, the hotel and the business district with its high rise buildings are there at your feet.

At the very top there is a white sculpture named "The Gate of Faith", depicting three Biblical scenes from the Old Testament: the sacrifice of Isaac, Jacob's dream and the conquest of Jericho. Tourists love to have their picture taken at this gate, with the view of Tel-Aviv and the sea in the background.

The slope of the Summit Park hill was shaped as an ampitheater, and in the summer free open-air concerts are held here. The vegetation in the park was especially chosen to be resistant to the wind and the salt.

Directions: On the summit of the Old Jaffa hill.
