Free parkour classes at Pier 62 with Parkour Visions: see below for updated COVID mask guidelines at this event

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 all ages and abilities with a focus on youth-friendly instruction, come play with us!

Parkour will be held outdoors. Waivers, masks, and social distancing are required. Participants are asked to dress for the weather and bring a water bottle. There will be multiple stations —for vaulting, swinging, jumping, and balancing themed — from which to choose once participants have signed waiver. Children must participate with an adult, no drop-offs.

Location: Pier 62
Class recommended for: Ages 4+
Price: Free

What if it’s raining?

Class is still on! Parkour Visions can adapt to wet conditions, which can provide new and interesting challenges.

Masks are Required

Coaches and participants are required to wear cloth face masks unless they cannot wear masks due to a condition that makes wearing a mask dangerous.

  • Adult and teen students (13+) are required to wear N95, KN95, or KF94 masks to class.
  • Youth students 12 and under are strongly encouraged to wear a KN95 or KF94.
  • Coaches must wear a well-sealed N95s, KN95s, or KF94 mask while teaching both youth AND adult classes.
