Gan Yaniv Mediation Garden

Outdoor Spaces

Nature Trail

The beautiful outdoor crushed granite jogging trail winds its way through woods and past the meditation garden. It is a great place to walk or jog while maintaining social distance! For easy access, park in the spaces alongside the fence near the guard booth. After parking, report to the gate and wait there until the guard checks you in and admits you to the trail. You will enter to trail from the pedestrian gate near the booth. 

Gan Yaniv Trail

The Gan Yaniv loop is .25 miles in length. Please stay on the path and do not cross any fences or barriers that are erected.

Due to construction of the new Hurt Family Tennis Center (Opening Summer 2021), the fields and main nature trail loops are temporarily closed. The 6 lit courts will include lines for adult and youth tennis and pickleball. With private and group lessons, camps, clinics, leagues and social tournaments available, everyone at any skill level can enjoy the courts.
