Parkour Park

Dorchester Parkour Park Campaign

Recently there has been various coverage in and out of the
Parkour community about the surprise removal of the Parkour Park in Dorchester.
This removal appears to have happened without consultation of its users and
without an effort to understand the local Parkour communities’ use of the facility. 

Parkour UK’s Development manager Chris Grant met this morning with a group made of up Parkour practitioners, coaches and facilities experts Ten Parkour (Natural Sports)  to discuss the issue and to look at how the group can take action to have the park reinstated or relocated.

There has already made progress with a radio interview, coverage of the issue by Travis Verkaik of The Motus Projects and communication with the local council.
The local community is supported by Train Hard Parkour who run classes in the area.

Parkour UK fully supports the group and welcomes dialogue with local council and any other parties connected to the build and removal of the park. We will continue to stand behind the Dorchester Parkour community on this issue.

If you are interested in supporting the group’s campaign please keep an eye on their website here DT1 Parkour.

If you are in a position to support in anyway please feel free to contact –

The UK’s newest #ParkourPark launched in Rastrick, Brighouse, West Yorkshire

The UK’s newest #ParkourPark designed and installed by our facility development partners Freemove has recently launched in Rastrick, Brighouse, West Yorkshire

The project has been 4 years in the making and has been funded by Pennine Housing and SITA. The project working group included:

– FLARA Group (Field Lane All Residents Association), a group working to see and implement improvement within the local area

– Pennine Housing Association – Land owners on which site was developed, and operate and manage a lot of the local housing in the area

– Calderdale Council – responsible for the Inspection/Maintenance of the facility

– Newground – Architects commissioned to deliver the project

The project included the new #ParkourPark including surfacing, in addition to a new youth shelter and supplementary equipment including bins/benches/signage and planters.

The introduction of the facility will hopefully provide a better community cohesion and also provide opportunities to the children, families & young people in the locality to #GiveParkourAGo, as well as engaging in more activities, improve their health and well being and hopefully reduce anti-social behaviour.

Coatbridge Parkour Park – Second phase of development

Parkour UK affiliate Coatbridge Parkour & partners Freemove  look to further develop the Coatbridge Parkour Park with a second phase of development.

They’ve just received the plans for the second phase, with the new structures providing additional obstacles & variety to the existing park. The brown sections in the drawing are the existing structures, everything else will be added when building work begins. Once the second phase is complete it will become a similar size to LEAP Parkour Park.

Needless to say that the team at Coatbridge Parkour are excited by the designs. This will be a valued addition to the existing park, but also a significant development for Parkour facilities in Scotland.

GREAT WORK! #ParkourInspiringAGeneration
