Kirkby-In-Ashfield Parkour Parks.

There has been two smaller Parkour Park projects which have gone through and been built over in Kirkby-In-Ashfield. Rather than do my own review of the parks I have instead quoted the Npk post below for you to all read for yourself.

There has been some really negative views of the parks mainly from the younger ones, which really does annoy me. To all who say these parks are ‘shit’ or ‘these are small, why were they even made?’ this coming from those people who use a single patch of grass to trick on all day long and that isn’t rubbish? The same guys who use the same areas in the same way each and every week, over and over again! (It must get really tiring and no wonder others venture else where to find new challenges and new inspiration). I find these peoples opinions void for that sole reason.

We all train at areas with very little, from two simple walls to a few bike rails. Yet we get creative and spend countless hours in the same area doing movements, trying to get creative and work with what we have as well as having fun in the process. Sure from the uneducated person these parks might seem not to hold that much for training, but to a Parkour practitioner we can make use of whatever we are given not matter how vast or spare.

I think people need to remember this is a start to Parkour being accepted and even if the Parks might be on a ‘smaller’ scale they have been built and that is great! Sure things cost money like anything does and we are lucky to get anything at all made regarding the council so I think people should bare that in mind before jumping to such insolent conclusions. :)

These parks should not be confused with the Nottingham Parkour park which will be built in Bulwell some time this year.

 

Morven Parkour Park has some small rails for linking moves together a few wooden stumps and a concrete structure which can be used for K2p’s, climb ups and it’s slopped side of the wall can be used for the ones who want to do more wall based tricks off it. The only downside is make sure to take caution when it is wet as it does prove to be slippery. Some images of the park can be viewed below.

Kingsway Parkour Park (Acre Park) has a similar wall which was used for the Freemove road tour. You can use this for Underbars and there are various rails grouped together for rail k2ps, rail precisions and general linking vaults together. They have some bars close together for practising Laches too near the Underbar wall. The wooden stumps can be used for precisions, take off points or even landing on from Laches. The only downside would be to say it is more rail based park and some of the rails are a bit too close together. Some images of the park can be viewed below.
