A new parkour site has opened near to the Hornchurch Swimming Pool, replacing the boating lake

We spoke to Havering council about the site, they responded to our tweet:

New

Previous small lake:

It’s purpose has confused some people and so we’re here to let you know. Parkour is basically the same as Freerunning where you run and perform acrobatics often in rural areas.

What do you think? Is this worth the money? Do you know anyone who will be using this?

Thanks to Peter Barrett for the image of the new site
