PARKOUR PARK FURUSET

The parkour park in Furuset is part of a major upgrade of a contiguous park area, called the world park. The area must increase the amenity value of a possible landscape and the surrounding residential buildings.

THE WORLDS PARK

The parkour park is designed as a broken path that lies like a horizontal plateau / a rock shelf, cut into the other slope. Throughout the trail, the parkour elements are built in as stations on an activity line. The parkour elements are specially developed for the site and include rails (constructions in steel pipes) for swings, climbing and conditioning and wall courses in cast concrete walls for vaults, catleaps and balancing.
