Parkour! You’re Not Too Old For Playgrounds!

Parkour! You're Not Too Old For Playgrounds!

Playgrounds were built with the intention to be climbed by the creative and adventurous minds of kids. Unfortunately, they are usually child-sized, but with a little creativity, you can turn them into an adult-sized training centre.

There are advantages of training here. One, they’re a public space (ignore the sign that says “Designed for kids under 12”). Two, they have a set of equipment that’s made for jumping and climbing. Three, they frequently have soft mulch or rubberized underfoot, so in the event that you screw up, you’ve got a safety cushion.

The drawback is kids. Beware that you don’t enrage their parents or, worse yet, trample the children. Avoid practising near children whenever possible.
