Gan Raveh Regional Council (Hebrew: מועצה אזורית גן רווה, Mo'atza Ezorit Gan Raveh) is a regional council in the Central District of Israel. The council's area of jurisdiction extends to nine settlements: a kibbutz, six moshavim, a yeshuv kehilati and a youth village. In 2017, the total population was 6,026. The council serves Ayanot, Beit Hanan, Beit Oved, Ge'alya, Gan Sorek, Irus, Kfar HaNagid, Neta'im, and Palmachim. 'Gan Raveh' means well-watered garden and these are words in a biblical verse of Isaiah,[1] which are reproduced on the signs of some of the council's villages, including Ayanot.

The head of the local council is Shlomo Elimelech.[2]
