The Flag trail
The founders square in memory of Feige and Reuven Lerer was established in this place as a token of appreciation and appreciation for the work, determination and courage of the first settlers in Wadi al-Hanin.
The square and the fountain at its center stand on the land of Reuven Lerer, where it was at a time when it reached the ground in 1883, one of the wells that was excavated centuries ago and used for a while by one of the local shaikim.
From this well, the early Ness Ziona people who lived in the nearby streets carried water in pitchers and bins for their home. The well was later renovated by the orchard man Ratner who used it for watering the orchard.
Lerer Square drains much of the traffic of the streets whose names express historical, national and local connections: "Weizman", "Herzl", "Rothschild", "Valley of the Roses", "Tel Aviv", "Bilu" and "the first minyan".
The square serves as a memorial site to the founders of Ness Ziona, due to the centrality of the place in the history of the colony that grew and developed from a family estate to a prosperous city in Israel, and as a matter of fact the uniqueness of the "Nahalat Reuven".
