"גן העיגול" - כיכר בורוכוב
כאן, בהצטלבות הרחובות קרן קיימת ובורוכוב, היה הצריף הציבורי הראשון בשכונה. בצריף היו שלושה חדרים: בחדר אחד היה בית ספר לילדי השכונה, בחדר שני ישב וועד השכונה ובחדר השלישי הייתה מרפאה. כאשר התברר שאין כסף לממן מבני קבע בכיכר, הוחלט לייעד אותה לגינה ציבורית. כדי להרגיל את הציבור, ובעיקר את העגלון השכונתי, לעקוף את הגינה, שלמה שניידרמן ויחזקאל בית הלחמי - שתלו שם עצי נוי והעמידו ספסלים.
במשך השנים הפך המקום למגרש משחקים. היו בו ארגז חול, נדנדות, סוס נדנדה וקרוסלה. במקום נפגשו חברי תנועות הנוער ופרחו האהבות הראשונות.
הכיכר קרויה היום "כיכר ראשונים", לזכרם של הראשונים, מייסדי השכונה.

Borochov Square "Circular Garden"

[Site description appears on separate sign]

"Circle Garden" - Borochov Square
Here, at the intersection of Keren Kayemet and Borochov streets, was the first public shack in the neighborhood. There were three rooms in the hut: one room had a neighborhood children’s school, the other had a neighborhood committee, and the third had a clinic. When it became clear that there was no money to finance permanent buildings in the square, it was decided to designate it for a public garden. To get the public, and especially the neighborhood wagon, to work around the garden, Shlomo Schneiderman and Ezekiel Beit Halahmi - planted ornamental trees and put up benches.
Over the years, the place has become a playground. It had a sandbox, swings, rocking horse and carousel. On the spot, members of the youth movements met and flourished the first loves.
The square is today called "Rishonim Square", in memory of the first, the founders of the neighborhood.
