Bavli (Hebrew: בבלי‎) is a neighborhood in central Tel Aviv, Israel, named after the Babylonian Talmud, and bounded by Hayarkon Park on the north, Ayalon highway to the east, Namir road to the west and Park Tzameret to the south. It was founded in 1957 and developed rapidly over the 1970s and 1980s. Due to its proximity to the city center and the park, it is considered a mostly upper middle class neighborhood, with a majority of older couples and families living within the area.
