Quadrangular pond that overlooks two streets on two of its sides. The rest of the perimeter is dividing to a laundry room and a single-family house. It is shallow and in the center there is a small covered building with a circular plan to house the ducks that live in the pond. On this building there is a lamppost and a perimeter metal fence on a masonry wall. It is an important milestone in urban life and constitutes a meeting place. Formerly it was a raft to store water and provide different services, especially the adjoining laundry. There are data on the first construction of the raft by the Arabs in the 12th century.
