גן אברהם
אחת מארבע הגבעות שכיתרו את "העמק". היה ידוע גם בשם "ההר". בשנת 1936 הורחבה החורשה ונקראה גן "הניצחון". בשנת 1946, ביום הולדתו ה-60 של קריניצי, הוסב שם הגן ל"גן אברהם".
המנהרה שנחצבה מתחת לרחוב הקשת (כיום רחוב שרת) חוצה את הגן לרוחבו ומחברת בין המדרון המזרחי למדרון המערבי. במדרון המזרחי מצויים האמפיתיאטרון וספסל ביאליק, ובמדרון המערבי, הצופה לכיוון תל-אביב והים, מצויים אנדרטת חללי תש"ח ובית הספר "בן-גוריון".
בשנת 1948 שימש המתחם כולו כמקום פעילות המטכ"ל ולמקום השבעת צה"ל. הגן תוכנן ע"י אדריכל הגנים העירוני משה כבשני.

The Abraham Garden
One of the four hills that crowned "HaEmek", this garden was also known as "The Hill." In 1936, the grove was expanded and named "The Victory Garden". In 1946, on Krinitzi’s 60th birthday, the name of the garden was changed to "The Abraham Garden."
The tunnel that was dug below Hakeshet Street (now called Sharet Street) transverses the breadth of the garden and connects the eastern slope to the western one. the amphitheater and the Bialik Bench are located on the eastern slope, and on the western slope, which overlooks Tel Aviv and the sea, a monument to the fallen soldiers of the 1948 War, and the "Ben Gurion" school. In 1948, the entire facility served as a site for General Staff activity and for IDF swearing-in ceremonies. The garden was designed by the municipal garden architect Moshe Kavshani.
