The Strand in Gillingham to get a parkour training facility
Fans of parkour are to get a dedicated training facility.
Medway Council has announced plans for the attraction in an area of The Strand Leisure Park in Gillingham.
A part of the park previously used for golf in the Strand Approach Road attraction is going to be transformed into a parkour circuit.
It will include railings, walls of different heights and rubber step logs.
Parkour is a sport which involves running, jumping and climbing for one location to another using elements of the environment.
The development is part of a £37,000 project which is part of a deal whereby developers have to improve local green spaces and other key services.
Weather permitting, the work is anticipated to be completed by the end of spring.
Cllr Howard Doe, Medway Council’s Portfolio Holder for Community Services, said: "This will be a great facility for people of all ages to learn a new sport.
"The facility has been designed specifically with parkour in mind and I’m looking forward to seeing the completed circuit."
