This extension not only creates a unifying force between the north and south of Tel Aviv-Yafo, but it also looks fantastic and is surprisingly practical.
The new extended stretches of boardwalk feature green, landscaped grass, wood-laid bridges and walkways and beautiful views of the city. Most importantly, they have constructed well marked bicycle lanes, and opened up spaces which were previously closed off to the public such as the Tel Aviv Marina by the Gordon Beach.

There is still more work planned for the Tel Aviv boardwalk, but plans have yet to be solidified. And until the next wave of construction is underway, I really think the most recent modifications have been significant and more than welcome.
