Site: Furuset, Oslo
Area: 2.000 m2
Status: Under construction Site: Furuset, Oslo

The parkour park in Furuset is part of a large upgrading of an integrated park area called the World Park. The purpose of the area is to increase the amenity value of an existing landscape and its surrounding housing developments.

The parkour park is designed as a winding path network formed as a horizontal plateau / a rock ledge cut into the existing slope. The parkour elements are integrated via the path network as stations along an activity line. The parkour elements are specially designed for the place and include rails (steel pipe constructions) for swings, climbing and conditioning and wall sections in concrete for vaults, cat leaps and balancing.

The material choice is kept simple in steel and in situ concrete, and the continuous floor is in bright yellow rubber asphalt, partly with a firm base under running paths and partly with granulated material under fall pads.

The lighting is an important factor in creating safety in the area and consists of seven high lamp masts with several spots on each. Each spot is either a part of an overall lighting or directed specifically towards the training grounds in order to ensure that they can also be used in the evening. A single oblique wall is equipped with a starry sky of small spots / diodes to create an illuminated waterfall.

Keywords: Parkour as a path, as a place of leisure in a park.
