Jayyous Skatepark is a collaboration between SkatePal and local non-profit SkateQilya. Jayyous is a village of 5000 people in the north western part of the West Bank, in the district of Qalqilya.

The skatepark was designed by SkatePal in conjunction with the Community Collective and East by West Co and built with the help of 20 international SkatePal volunteers in September 2017. 

From Spring 2018 onwards, SkatePal will be providing international volunteers to teach skateboarding in co-operation with SkateQilya, who will be managing the day-to-day running of the skatepark.

Rosa Park, Asira Al-Shamaliya. 2015-present


'Rosa Park' is SkatePal's second concrete skatepark in the West Bank, and the largest in the country. 

Situated in the northern West Bank village of Asira Al-Shamaliya, the 700m2 concrete park was built by twenty international volunteers and completed in October 2015. All materials for the park were sourced locally in the village.

SkatePal is currently hosting weekly skateboarding lessons throughout the year and working to develop a sustainable skateboarding scene in the village and the surrounding district. 

The park is a collaboration between SkatePal, The Palestinian House of Friendship and the Asira Al-Shamaliya Council.
