Lit up at night with golden light guides along the path, each stop tells a story. It's very easy to follow and brings history to life. An excellent addition to this area that connects the dots!

I didn't even know that this place existed until I walked past it- it is not on my tourist map or guide book. It's a modest memorial and a modest fountain (see my photos). If you are there, then go see it for 5-10 minutes;...More

This is not an extensive monument and the pool are certainly tempting for lids on hot days. Worth taking a moment as you walk past to take a look. It’s accessible and a light tough on Israeli history but significant nonetheless.

This is a beautiful and poignant memorial to the founding fathers of this miraculous and beautiful little country. Situated on Rothschild, close to the Independence Hall, where Ben Gurion declared the State of Israel 70 years ago. Interesting and a must see.

In truth I only stumbled across this while walking along Rothschild Boulevard towards Independence Hall. It seemed so out of place that I felt compelled to find out what this was. Turns out the fountain and monument is to commemorate the first group of people...More

This attraction locates on famous and most beautiful Tel Aviv boulevard, but it is not at all adds beauty. Possibly it looked nice before several decades, but now it is old, without lighting, without any decorations, and looks old and dirty (not only looks, it...More

It's a bit Nondescript with Hebrew words on one side and an engraving on the other side. However one thing I am sure I think they are convinced that israel's independence is on the hard work of the founders and cannot be taken for granted.

If you are on Rothschild Boulevard, than that is a good place to stop and take a break. Isn t a great fountain, but is on a traffic route for tourists.

Nothing truly special, but a shallow fountain with a small memorial marker. It is located centrally and as such you might stumble over it, but not worth the visit.
