ספסל ביאליק
המשורר חיים נחמן ביאליק עבר להתגורר ברמת-גן בשנת 1933, בה בילה את שנת חייו האחרונה, תוך שהוא מרבה לטייל בגבעה זו. "כאן מצאתי את המנוחה שביקשתי", אמר.
הישיבה במקום זה, האוויר הצח והנוף אל הים, עוררו בו השראה. מספרים כי כאן הוא כתב את שני שיריו האחרונים: "פרידה" ו"אלמנות".
בשנת 1939, במלאת חמש שנים למותו, הקימה המועצה המקומית רמת-גן ספסל לזכרו עליו כתוב: "ציון למשוררנו ח.נ. ביאליק מקום אווה לטיוליו בימי שבתו ברמת-גן, התרצ"ט".

The Bialik Bench
The poet Hayim Nahman Bialik moved to Ramat-Gan in 1933, where he spent the final years of his life, and often took to walking on this hill. "Here I found the serenity I yearned for", he said.
Sitting in this spot, the pure air and the view of the sea served to inspire him. Rumor has it that it was here that he wrote his last two poems: "Prida" and "Almenut".
In 1939, five years following his death, the Ramat-Gan Local Council set up a bench in his memory, which bears the inscription: "A memorial to our poet H. N. Bialik. The favorite place for his excursions when he dwelled in Ramat-Gan, 5699".
