Gan HaDarom (Hebrew: גַּן הַדָּרוֹם, lit. Garden of the South) is a moshav in southern Israel. Located on the coastal plain near Ashdod, it falls under the jurisdiction of Gederot Regional Council. In 2019 it had a population of 636.
The first settlers in Gan HaDarom lived in a ma'abara in neighboring Gan Yavne until the infrastructure was complete for permanent habitation. In 1957–58, twenty new houses were built, and 15 families who arrived from Poland moved into them.
Most residents of the modern moshav make their living by working in nearby cities Ashdod and Yavneh. The minority who work in agriculture mainly cultivate poultry, citrus, avocado, and other fruit and vegetables.
