What do you think of the controversial Parkour site in Flackwell Heath?

Bucks Free Press: What do you think of the controversial Parkour site? What do you think of the controversial Parkour site?

WORK on the new controversial Parkour facility in Flackwell Heath is expected to begin within the next 24 hours.

The build was originally meant to start last week but was delayed after the contractors fell behind schedule after the recent flooding.

The new facilities are expected to be built near outdoor gym-equipment at the Recreation Ground in Straight Bit Road.

As work begins this week, the Bucks Free Press would like to know your views on the new site.

You can let us know your thoughts be emailing andrew.colley@london.newsquest.co.uk

This is a waste of money, how will the local residents feel about it when it starts being used if at all, what will happen to it in the winter, The other exercise bits were vandalised within the first few weeks.
Of course something is needed for the local youth and I dare say it will have some use but once the initial interest wears off what then. What is needed is something similar to the skate board site under the railway bridge in Wycombe perhaps such a facility could be sited under the motorway bridge at the bottom of Treadaway.

It is brilliant news for all and will encourage a new type of interest for young people. it is certainly not a waste of money. The local residents should just get over themselves and be grateful they are lucky to live in such a nice area and be grateful for small mercies. A parkour area will not greatly impact on their lives, they should go and volunteer at the local soup kitchen and see what real hardship is and it will put it into perspective 1st world problem!
