Free parkour classes at Pier 62 with Parkour Visions

Have you ever seen parkour, obstacle course racing, or ninja warrior and wanted to give it a try but weren’t sure where to start? Come out and learn the basics of parkour — balancing, locomotion, jumping, vaulting, and swinging — under the guidance of experienced parkour teachers.

Different stations teach you basic falling safety, fun movement games to play with your family, and individual skills. Open to ages and abilities; come play with us!

Parkour will be held outdoors with a limit of 20 participants. Waivers, masks, and social distancing are required. Participants are asked to dress for the weather and bring a water bottle. There will be four stations — vaulting, swinging, jumping, and balancing themed — from which to choose once participants have signed waiver.

 

Note: a class was previously listed Sunday, September 12 and it has been cancelled.

Location: Pier 62
Participation Limit: 20 per class
Class recommended for: Ages 4+
Price: Free
