Children play on structures in Abwein playgroundThis playground in ‘Abwein village, outside of Ramallah, is a fun and enchanting maze of playground structures nestled into some of the ruins from ‘Abwein’s historic center. Many families have moved out of this area of the village in recent years and Riwaq’s rehabilitation work on homes and community centers—along with these great play areas—are part of bringing life back to
the neighborhood.

The playground is part of MECA’s work with Riwaq Center for Architectural Conservation and their “50 Villages Project” torestore historic buildings and revitalize public spaces in Palestine. In 2013, we helped Riwaq build three new playgrounds serving children in West Bank villages.
