Crynant Parkour Park, South Wales
Crynant Parkour Park is a joint effort by Play Works, Groundwork Bridgend & Neath Port Talbot and Crynant Community Council.
Local young people, Traceurs/Freerunners highlighted a need for a Parkour Park in their area and the Community Council allocated a space next to a Skate Park and MUGA that is ideal for a Parkour training facility.
To assess the popularity of Parkour in the area the group asked local Parkour group & Parkour UK members Fluidity Freerun to host taster sessions. The sessions were a huge hit and the Parkour Park is due to be installed this summer.
