The LEAP (London Experience of Art du Deplacement and Parkour) Park is the world’s first managed outdoor Parkour facility, situated in the heart of London.
A collaborative project between Parkour Generations, the City of Westminster and Parkour UK, the facility was designed by the Parkour Generations Design Team of architects, artists and highly experienced practitioners.
LEAP provides an unrivaled training experience for anyone wishing to begin parkour, or to improve and challenge their existing abilities. Parkour Generations runs regular classes and events at the facility.
The facility has been designed to enable Parkour practitioners of all abilities to develop their skills in a realistic environment but to also ensure the health and safety of participants.
LEAP operates as a managed facility at Westminster Academy, so appropriate supervisory arrangements are in place for each type of user.
To access LEAP at any time, come and do a simple hour-long induction session with one of our qualified coaches and you can be enjoying this unique facility soon. Inductions need to be booked via Westminster Academy, whose contact details can be found by clicking here.
