So as many of you may know, there is a thriving Parkour community in Leeds & has been for over 15 years! We have always wanted a Parkour Park in our city, especially when so many other cities are starting to build them. Leeds is one of the biggest UK cities, and a well known hotspot for Parkour! So we think it would be an amazing idea to have one built here too.

Generally we train around the city at various spots, but over the years, it is becoming more and more difficult for us to train as freely as we used to, with security becoming stricter and many areas being private land, we spend a lot of the time being told to leave. Having an outdoor Parkour Park would give us so much more freedom to train in a safe and secure location without being a nuisance to private areas around the city! It would encourage young and old people to take part in this sport, in this park where they can meet other practitioners, train in a safer and more comfortable environment. 

This would be a huge impact to many of us and many practitioners from all around the world would come to Leeds to train at this park, just as we do to theirs! It would really mean a lot as this is something we in the Leeds Parkour community, have been dreaming for, and trying to achieve, for more than 10 years. Now we finally have the platform, experience, and the support we need to make it happen. All we need is enough signatures to get the attention of Leeds City Council, and make this a reality! Thankyou for reading.
