Design of Parkour Park
JIYO designed the world's first official parkour park "JIYO Parken", which was inaugurated in Ørestad in Copenhagen in August 2009. The park was made in close collaboration with By & Havn.
The park quickly became world famous when it was featured in the documentary "MY PLAYGROUND" (by film director Kaspar Astrup Schroder), which toured the world at film festivals.
When building a parkour park, there are many things that need to be taken into account to ensure that safety is top notch and that what is being built can actually be used for parkour.
Watch the film below "JIYO Parkour Park - a playground in the city", where we see the development of one of the world's most iconic Parkour Parks, from idea to drawings to the realization of a parkour facility in the heart of Copenhagen.
Understanding a Parkour Park
A Parkour Park is a safe, stimulating environment, richly equipped with a variety of physical challenges. These challenges, designed to inspire parkour, can range from simple to complex structures and appeal to a wide range of skill levels. A Parkour Park is a creative playground where everyone can challenge and expand their limits.
The value of a Parkour Park
Creating a Parkour Park in your community can have significant benefits. It provides local children and young people with a positive and engaging leisure environment and can help strengthen the overall community. A Parkour Park can be a meeting place for different generations and promote cohesion in your local area.
Safety in a Parkour Park
One of the main focus areas when talking about a parkour park is safety. It's important to design a park that takes into account the safety of all users without compromising the freedom and challenge that parkour offers. Every structure and obstacle in a parkour park is designed with user safety in mind, with appropriate padding and high-quality materials. In addition, users are encouraged to develop and strengthen their techniques gradually to prevent injury and ensure they have fun and get the most out of the park.
Safety is also an integral part of our design process. We work closely with the local community, parkour experts and safety consultants to ensure that every parkour park we develop is both challenging and safe. In addition, we provide regular maintenance and inspection to maintain a high standard of safety in our parkour parks.
Investing in a Parkour Park is therefore not only an investment in physical activity and community, but also in the safety and well-being of children and young people in your local community. With a Parkour Park, you're sure to have a safe and exciting place where children and young people can develop their skills, express themselves creatively and build confidence.
Unique design creates amazing opportunities for movement
"If you want to design a parkour park, it's important to consult experts in parkour and freerunning who have experience with parkour design, otherwise you risk the parkour park being unusable or - in the worst case scenario - dangerous for those who use it." [ Martin Coops, Team JIYO ]
