Community Sport and Children’s Playground Beit Jala

Com­plet­ed Projects

Salam (Peace) Park, was estab­lished on 4 dunums of land that were obtained by the Beit Jala Munic­i­pal­i­ty. There are sev­er­al recre­ation­al areas in the Gar­den, includ­ing a children’s play­ground, a bird sanc­tu­ary, and a park. It accom­mo­dates hun­dreds of vis­i­tors who come reg­u­lar­ly from many regions of the West Bank. The Gar­den wel­comes orga­nized groups, fam­i­lies, and indi­vid­u­als and has become a pre­ferred loca­tion for school trips, scout camps, and fam­i­ly gath­er­ings. Its unique land­scape is home to dozens of species of birds that favor the rich loca­tion of Al-Sahel Val­ley. BDF Inter­ven­tion A gen­er­ous dona­tion of a $50,000 was made by the Late Mr. Said T. Khoury RIP, for the reha­bil­i­ta­tion of the play­ground. A con­cept design that was sub­mit­ted to Beit Jala Munic­i­pal­i­ty includ­ed replac­ing the children’s play­ground equip­ment and amuse­ments, adding bench­es, plants, per­go­las, light­ing fea­tures and many oth­er improvements.

Beit Jala Munic­i­pal­i­ty hired a local engi­neer­ing com­pa­ny for the detailed design and super­vi­sion. The con­tract was award­ed to Broth­ers Engi­neer­ing for Con­tract­ing Co. Works expect­ed to be com­plet­ed in Feb­ru­ary 2017.
