Skatepark Damascus completed!

It’s done!

The Skatepark, which we have planned in cooperation with skate-aid and SOS Children’s Villages Worldwide in Syria, has celebrated its official opening.

The skate park builders have done more than a good job as you can see in the pictures. The park is already being used daily by the schoolkids.

Our colleague David Welter also helped diligently with the construction on site. Unfortunately, the playground equipment next to the skatepark was not delivered in time, but is expected to be set up in the next few weeks.

Children’s Youth and Amusement Park Dortmund Hombruch

Children’s Youth and Amusement Park Dortmund Hombruch

We were commissioned to create attractive and up-to-date sports and leisure facilities at the Hombruch youth camp.

The concept provides many different areas on the multifunctional area: bowl, snakerun, slackline, football field, street area, pump track, children’s run, parkour, calisthenics park, lookout hill, barbecue area and grass court. In addition, it is important to consider all user groups in the form of different difficulty levels.

The open spaces for the skating facilities will also be usable for national and international events.

Start of construction is scheduled for 2021 and 2022 it should be completed.
