Another glimpse into the wonders of the internet...

Did you know that "free-running" was so dynamic and important to Forest Parkers? Will the Park District's Roos planning provide some challenging obstacles for Parkour practitioners? Parkour...Our Park?

This is just obstacle course training in a public setting. Nothing wrong with that, unless (until?) it crosses over into criminal trespass to property and/or criminal damage to property. 

In all the comments on the FPR regarding parkour, I saw no concern expressed from its proponents about the possible negative effects on the non-parkour public. 

If the people engaging in this sport/discipline/training exercise are responsible and sensitive to the rights of others- including property rights, I see no problem. 

My concern is that they'll conduct themselves like so many skateboarders do, with no respect for private property or other people's right to peace. All it takes is a few insensitive jerks.

There are 2 fitness centers right across from the 16th St park, LivFit and Bulldog Bootcamp. There haven't been any problems r/t either of these gyms, just sweaty people working very hard.

15 Review readers(?) were moved enough by the item to comment. Only 2 comments on the 7-11 Shooter's sentencing, 5 on IDOT's expansion of the Ike, 6 each on 2 D91 related items.

Although none of the comments about Parkour were overtly negative or anti-parkour, the comments began to represent an offended class. Maybe there have been unfavorable stories before?

It reminded me of the bluster that came with the story about Bill Winston's bank...

That's not my point. I'm not concerned about the responsible people with the discipline to work out regularly at any given exercise discipline. I'm concerned about the minority of fools who take something like this too far. 

I first heard of this approach six or seven years ago, and it involved guys using all sorts of public and private structures for extreme exercise regimes. Lie I said, just "a few insensitive jerks."
