Last month we learned about Tel Aviv’s plans to dock a 2,000-person cruise ship by the city’s seashore to help address a shortage of rooms in the city during Eurovision.
And now Y Net is reporting that the Israeli Tourism Ministry and the Tel Aviv municipality are considering yet another option: building a camp site for Eurovision fans!
The plan, which is in the initial stages of planning, involves designating an area of HaYarkon Park — Tel Aviv’s largest — for various types of tents and caravans for singles, couples and even families. This will also include a service area with showers, bathrooms, tourist information and even laundry facilities.
This is one of the largest parks in the centre of the country and it runs from Tel Aviv port all the way to Ramat Gan, an eastern suburb of the city. It is bordered by Rokach Boulevard where the ICC is located, so it’s location is sure to attract a lot of visitors. The park also offers many attractions such as biking, a bird safari, mini golf and other sports.
As you can see in the pic at the top of this post, it’s rather lovely. Whether y’all can cope with spending two weeks in a camper van is another matter entirely.

Not feeling it? Consider casting your net a bit wider.
Tel Aviv itself is the second largest city in Israel but if you add its suburbs then it easily becomes the largest city in the country both in size and population (with around four million citizens). The District of Tel Aviv is vast and it is also referred to as the “Gush Dan” area. Due to its size, about 5 or 6 cities only are considered part of Tel Aviv and are easily accessed from it, some of which are located close to the arena such as Ramat Gan and Herzliya.
Bat Yam and Jaffa could also be suitable for visitors who wish to be close to the Charles Clore Pare (with the latter forming an integral part of the city).
Tel Aviv has therefore invited its neighbours to join its efforts and to offer rooms for visitors in order to help with the shortage of rooms.
