TK Regional Prototype



Partner organization : Yala City Municipality

History : Thailand Knowledge Park Yala (TK park Yala) is the first regional TK park in the country. It was born out of a collaboration between Thailand Knowledge Park (TK park) and Yala City Municipality. It is aimed to be an open public space for people from diverse cultural backgrounds to exchange knowledge, learn to live together and contribute in creating a learning community in the Deep South.

TK park Yala is a part of the project honoring the 60th anniversary of King Bhumibol's accession to the throne. On February 6, 2007, HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn presided over the opening of the park, bringing gratefulness to all Yala residents.

TK park Yala is situated at a strategic location inside Yala City Municipality Youth Center in the heart of the town. It is an area that is easy to access, safe and regularly shared by both Buddhist and Muslim residents.
