PeaceArk

Public outdoor playground

PeaceArk

Since March 2012 Beit Al Liqa‘ has been proud owner of an indoor playground, the so-called PeaceArk. It consists of a spacious play and climbing area as well as a dedicated toddlers’ corner. Parents and Beit Al Liqa’s overnight guests are welcome to while away the time over a latte, chatting with friends in the integrated café serving a range of scrumptious hot sandwich meals, crispy salads, delicious cakes and snacks. The PeaceArk makes for a perfect addition to the overall ministry. It is not only used during the cooler season as a meeting place for families, but also during the lengthy hot season as a refuge from the scorching sun. By now our indoor playground has made a name for itself beyond the Bethlehem region.

The PeaceArk welcomes visitors six days a week. In addition, it is open to kindergarten and school classes. In the afternoons it is also a popular place for kids’ birthday parties.

The PeaceArk is a great place for families to meet and mingle in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. It is also a marvelous opportunity to make our visitors acquainted with Beit Al Liqa’s other programs.

Public outdoor playground

In 2000, the first public playground in the entire Bethlehem province was built on Beit Al Liqa’s premises. Since then there has been a steady flow of visitors, many of them regulars, to our garden/playground spending a major part of their leisure time here. We are a favorite destination for field trips taken by schools, churches and other organizations. With a warm climate for most of the year, celebrating family festivities and birthday parties in the great outdoors is very common in this part of the world, so Beit Al Liqa’s garden is frequently booked for special occasions.

People love meeting under our age old fig tree with its vast crown chatting with friends and family. We often sit with them, catching up with old friends and making new ones. Since most people here do not get the chance to venture beyond the Palestinian territories that often, Beit Al Liqa’ to many is the only ‘holiday island’ within reach.

Make a difference in the lives of many in the Bethlehem region!
