"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 childrens 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.
