    the wall from the refugee camp Wall double its original height Blocked up window visible on right over Murad s back yard Nura Alkhalili The Old Site According to Murad the site initially had three entrances the first one from the main street the second one from the school this one was left closed on demand of the school and the third from the camp The site was used as a soccer field as soccer is the most popular game in Palestine It was also used as an open space for the refugee community Many refugees living behind the site used this space as a way to bring large things in and out of the camp The previous wall around the site was almost half a meter high I continued my talk with Murad and he told me The municipality has raised the height of the wall to almost three meters even the existing entrance from the camp has been closed We asked the contractor for a window at least to have an opening left so he did it Then the municipality closed it Claimed Ownership Murad continued this land belongs to us the residents of the refugee camp We used to protect it and take care of it Now we have to take a long walk just to enter it as the entrance is from the main street which is in the opposite direction of the camp He continued A hospital is located on the way to the park and that is unsafe for our kids as many ambulances pass by in the street Image of the site before development Previous entrances from school left and camp rear visible Hiba Ayyoubi Image of the site prior to creating the Fitness Park showing the previous football field and the public school nearby Hiba Ayyoubi Resistance vs Border Murad continued Since they closed the window we resisted and we insisted on having our own accessibility so we managed to have at least this hole in the wall It is only a small hole but at least we have a small opening In response to my puzzlement about what this hole could do and what kind of accessibility it might give them he showed me how they use this hole View of the closed window hole from Murad s backyard Nura Alkhalili Accessibility through and above borders view from refugee camp Nura Alkhalili Accessibility through and above borders view public park Nura Alkhalili July 2011 In July 2011 after hearing Murad s story my curiosity about the dynamic process of wall modification increased Thus I decided to interview the officials involved in the creation of the park The first interview was held with the landscape architect involved in the design process The design was delegated to the Department of Architecture at Birzeit University I began by addressing the topic of entrances The architect said Initially it was agreed that we would create a main entrance from the main street and another side entrance from the refugee camp on the eastern border by enhancing the already existing entrance The architect explained this by showing me the first Site Plan Design The architect added However after a series of negotiations we agreed to move the side entrance towards the corner of the wall as you see in the final Site Plan Design after a series of other changes regarding the placement of internal facilities So I asked the architect How come in practice there is no entrance although in the design is it very clear The architect said All I know is that the side entrance was closed by mistake The contractor in charge of implementation forgot to leave it open The architect continued During the implementation process several cases of robbery occurred on some equipment to be used in the park I am not saying the refugee community is to blame but this prompted the idea of creating a control system on the park and maybe just leaving it with one entrance from the main road My next question was And what about the reaction of the refugee community represented by their Local Committee LC The architect said As far as I know the LC has sought to re open it but at the end of the day the ultimate decision maker is the municipality First site plan refugee camp to east school to north Final site plan refugee camp to east school to north Even if there will be a side entrance The architect continued Even though the side entrance was accepted in the final Site Plan Design the municipality did not request a design for the stairs behind the wall despite the difference in land levels The design of the park finished right at the borders of the wall The Director of Ramallah Municipality The Director of the Ramallah Municipality kindly agreed to an interview and one of my main questions concerned the accessibility to the park from the side of the refugee camp He replied saying This park has been created to serve marginalized social groups and this is clear as it is located next to a refugee camp If we intended to prevent the refugee community from using this space we would have simply chosen other land He continued The side entrance was cancelled at the implementation phase on request of some members of the Qadura LC It is essential to keep in mind that the LC has always been part of the design process of the park Furthermore it is preferable for public parks to have only one main entrance for control reasons The window has been totally closed as it was opened illegally against the will of the municipality The woman living behind the wall asked the contractor to open a window while constructing the wall The family living behind the wall was using this opening in violation of property ownership of the municipality The back image of the wall from Qadura refugee camp The final side
