From Garbage Mountain to Amphitheatre

A new 50,000 seat amphitheater is being planned for construction in Tel Aviv's new urban park, which was built on top of a garbage dump.

The new theater is expected to fill a gap in the city, where outdated infrastructure has limited the effectiveness of other sites.

"The final plans for the 2,000-acre park are being completed this week, while major earthworks have been continuing for the past year. The park is slated to be the largest metropolitan park built anywhere in the world in the past century, and its planning has attracted significant international attention. Besides serving as a green lung for Gush Dan, the Tel Aviv metropolitan area, Ariel Sharon Park will serve as a floodplain. Its planners hope it will put an end to the winter flooding that typically affects certain neighborhoods in south Tel Aviv and in Holon."
