The parkour training site, designed by the Urban Playground Parkour Team (UPG), features a series of obstacles and training facilities that provide a unique opportunity for traceurs to practise and improve their skills.

The facility is a place where fundamental techniques can be practised in a ‘live’ environment which encourages spontaneity, innovation and the creation of individual style. It’s intended to improve the confidence and competence of the people who train there.

Parkour, Free-Running, Art Du Deplacement; Call it what you will – the discipline of overcoming obstacles with efficient movement is an art of self-expression and exploration. It is based upon a philosophy of training oneself to become useful – useful to others and able to react to a dynamic and changing environment. It should always be practiced safely and with consideration for other users of the shared environment.

CAUTION

Users of this site do so at their own risk. Parkour is not ever about taking unnecessary risks, neither is it an “adrenaline sport”. Parkour is non-competitive and celebrates each individual’s style and achievement. Parkour’s creators have been training daily for twenty years and are still capable of great physical feats because they have remained cautious and considerate in their practice.

Remember the following principles as you create your own way of moving:

  • Any change of height involves risk
  • The more points of contact you have, the safer you’ll be
  • Speed and height are the last achievements in a long programme of training
  • Please only use this site after a thorough warm up and follow your training session with a thorough cool down
  • Do not attempt anything without forethought and consideration for your safety – we care about you!

The site was funded and built by Crawley Borough Council and designed by the Urban Playground Team with advice from Gravity Style, Co-Creators of parkour, and in response to a brief set by young people in Crawley.
