Gardens & Parks
The vision for the planning of the Herzliya sportek is a combination of a pastoral landscape design with urban features. The basis of the design concept is to place the sport facilities between gentle round hills.
The sportek accommodates a vast age range and includes four multipurpose sport fields, basketball yard, skating arena, play area, patank fields and a youth club. The sport facilities are immersed into the topography to avoid having to use high net 'cages' around the fields, in order to create a flux and continuity between the sport facilities and the surrounding park area.
Considerable emphasis is put on creating shadowed spaces, using trees, pergolas, and shaded passageways connecting the city, the sportek and the nearby Herzliya Park.
