Three million visitors a year and an income of 35 million Shekels, is the expectation of the founders of the new leisure, entertainment, shopping and cinema center "G' Cinema City" which is to be inaugurated in two weeks in the west of Rishon Lezion.

The new center will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and will integrate the cinema experiences beside abundant places of entertainment and shopping. Movie theaters are concentrated on the upper floor in an area of 12,000 square meters; and we speak about modern 26 movie theaters, computerized and dynamic, including VIP halls, halls for children, horror halls, halls for lovers and an elaborated Cinemax hall.

happening at the purple iris hill
Happening at the Purple Iris Hill

Thousands of people attended the event "The Purple Iris Gravel Hills' Happening", to

observe the purple iris' blossoming; as exactly at this time every year, the Purple Iris

flourishes in the gravel hills of Rishon-Le- Zion and Nes-Ziyona and we are talking

about the kind of hills that are vanishing.

Visitors enjoyed the services of posts that gave information about diverse topics such as explanations about: environmental planning with emphasis on the metropolitan resort areas which the Purple Iris Hill is part of, the

geological layers of the gravel cliff, the purple iris

and its ways of reproduction, the reptiles in the area

and so on.

Local High School Students from the Environmental

Preservation classes marked the trails and the Irises in

order to protect them from injury by the participants

of the event. The students also served as guides for

the visitors. The city cleanliness trustees assisted in

the event's organization and handed out informational materials.

rishon le zion lake
Rishon Le Zion Lake

Contradictory to its image, Rishon is more than shopping centers and new residential

neighborhoods. In the western area exists a small lake. This is a special fascinating nature site with a rich and rare selection of animals and plants.

As the time passed a unique and impressive ecological system has developed by itself in and around the small lake including a variety of plants, animals, fishes and birds. The latters use it as a resting stop in their long journey from Europe to Africa

The lake attracts many nature lovers and photographers who come to observe and 'hunt' the different species with their lenses. The grounds serve also as a recreational and picnics area for families and youngsters.

It has been suggested to turn the place into a protected municipal nature site and build there accessible pathways, including observation posts for birds' and animals' watchers.
