The municipality of Hod-Hasharon was established as a cluster of four colonies or neighborhoods, each of which has its own center of public activities. The aim of the proposed municipal civic center is to create a complex of public services in an area common to the four neighborhoods, to unite them into a municipal fabric.

The center comprises six functional complexes: a civic complex at the north of the site, which includes a new three-story municipality building and other public buildings around an open public courtyard; a commerce, business and entertainment complex which will be a focus of activities during day and night; a city square complex that opens onto the main road and traces the natural topography; an existing memorial complex surrounded by trees commemorating the fallen in Israel’s wars; a cultural and educational complex that includes, among others, an auditorium and an open amphitheater, overlooking the park; an academic complex facing the park, and abutting a protected grove of eucalyptus trees.

A public park extends from the east of the site, sloping down from the built-up hill towards the wadi and the road. The main pedestrian axis, which begins from the pedestrian mall beside the commerce, business and entertainment building, runs from the north of the site to the eucalyptus grove and joins the pedestrian bridge that passes over the park, concluding beyond the tree-lined avenue in the park, in the vicinity of the school that exists there.
