5. Open field
Similar to the beach, an open field offers a great space to practice flips and rolls with a fairly soft surface to land.
6. Wheelchair ramps
Wheelchair ramps are a great place to start, featuring sturdy rails
Forests are another excellent public space,featuring trees of many shapes and sizes, streams, bridges, logs and rocks as platforms and obstacles which offer somewhat unpredictable experience to improve your flow and improvisational skills. In case you fall, the forest floor is a lot nicer place to land than an alleyway. Whereas parkour parks can be specifically built, a lot of the best parkour spots are just outside the cities or urban areas which have been explored, mapped out and shared online through forums and social media by traceurs around the world.
To be specific, these are the most popular parkour parks and destinations right now. Let’s take you through the list:
Seattle, Washington, has some of the best places for parkour and freerunning such as Freeway Park which was built for activities and specifically freestyle training with lots of obstacles to creative in an open and dedicated space or the Gas Works Park which is an old production plant being converted into a park with a lot of the old parts remain in place that creates a unique space to train in, and well worth checking out.
Hawaii is one of the most incredible destinations in the world for many reason. In downtown Honolulu there is the Ala Moana beach park which has become famous placd with freerunners and traceurs, featuring over 100 acres of space with different landscape to explore including sand, grass and even some water so you can get out and try something new. This is perhaps the best outdoor parkour area in the world and is absolutely one must-visit destination.
