Parkour and Freerunning Continue to Surge!

Newly reopened Betsy Head Park in Brooklyn is the first in NYC with a Parkour course. 

Brooklyn’s Betsy Head Park is now open to the public after a $30 million upgrade, which included the addition of the city’s first-ever Parkour course.

The upgrade of the 106-year-old park reimagines the two pieces of land that sit diagonally across Dumont Ave. to create a cohesive, inclusive and multi-generational green space.

In a press release, a spokesperson from Abel Bainnson Butz, LLP (ABB) Landscape Architects, who worked on the project with NYC Parks Department, said the vision was to provide a versatile experience for all ages and abilities, which met the current and changing needs of the community.

Meanwhile in France, the birthplace of Parkour- 

PLAYGONES, a playground equipment design and manufacturing firm, now offers ready to install Parkour and Freerunning parks to municipalities across Europe. These are exciting times for these emerging sports and the multitudes of participants who are engaged in them.
