In July 2013, the beach city of Netanya introduced its NIS 30 million project, the completely redeveloped Kikar Haatzmaut (Independence Square) including Israel’s first interactive public fountain.

Built with LED screens, water screens and an advanced lighting system, the Kikar Haatzmaut fountain features a nightly sound-and-light show.

The new boardwalk for pedestrians is highlighted by beautiful landscaping and seating modules as well as giant screens to show passersby what’s going on at cultural events and concerts in other parts of the city at that very moment.
