The Winter Pool Park
Meeting place: 3 Shoshana Persitz St., at the end of the parking lot behind "Tichonet"
Friday, May 23rd, 8:00 and 9:30  
Fit for childrenEchologic Tour
An opportunity to become familiar with the winter pool that was excavated here last year. It was part of a joint project carried out by the Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality`s City Beautification Division and the Environmental Protection Authority on land where there used to be a natural winter pool. The project had two aims: to conserve part of a quickly disappearing and typical coastal plain landscape, including the variety of plants and animals found there, and to make nature accessible to the city`s residents. The tours, led by Liav Shalem, the landscape architect who designed the park, will talk about the works that were carried out as well as the factors that were taken into account in order to create optimal habitats for the local species of flora and the numerous animals drawn to the pool – insects, crabs, amphibians, birds and mammals – many of whom are in danger of extinction. Shalem will describe the process whereby the vegetation was rehabilitated, in which students from nearby schools and residents took part. It entailed planting wildflowers (Palestine Lupines, Coast Chamomiles, Sea Squills, Ashpodels) and preparing trails and signage. Visitors are advised to wear closed-back shoes.
