This addition is meant for teens and not for younger kids. Parks Department Landscape Architect Meredith Bracken said, "We feel that they’re [teens] underserved." She does note the difficulty of parkour saying, "It takes quite a bit of dexterity and practice."
The extensive Riverside Park South upgrade is planned to begin this summer, along with other remodeling throughout the park from 59th – 72nd streets. We can’t wait to see how things turn out!
Will you take your kids to try out this new parkour equipment? Do you like this idea or do you prefer traditional playground equipment?
