Back in 2011 that there was a petition which U:R had created and put forward to the council in hope of getting a Parkour park build in the Nottingham area. There had been various meetings regarding it throughout 2012, then in 2013 it got commissioned to be built from March of that year at Bulwell Forest Recreational Ground. The Parkour park was completed and open to the public as of June the 29th 2013.
How to get there.
The park is located at the Bulwell Forest recreational ground, for people who are not familiar of the area you can put the ’53.000968,-1.180485′ code into Google maps to see the exact area where the park is located. Alternatively you can put the address into your journey planer; Hucknall Rd Nottingham NG6 9LQ.
The park is on two main bus company routes, Trent Barton ‘The Threes‘ which drops you directly next to the park (opposite the Top Valley 24hr Tescos) the other bus company is the NCT 17 which drops you off across the field from the park on Saint Albums Road before walking across the golf course field. Each of the bus journeys take 10-20 minutes depending on traffic and peak time.
Are there more Parkour parks?
