So I have been able to find my renderings.  I would like to incorperate these two models together.  Use the highlighted area if you can to try to incorperate my idea with curve of these ramps.  If you can merge the two designes and even add a couple along the way..that would be GREAT thanks guys.

My idea...parkour/skatepark elements incorperated into it.

I'm sorry but did anyone else see something like an M C Escher picture in that second one, i don't know if it's just me but i'm finding it very disorienting, maybe you could clear it up somehow?

Ahhh the great almighty pk park. I got a friend doing architecture in college thats also going to build one. As for ideas, I think that you should scope out some of the TOP pk videos and check out the architecture there because then you'll have an idea of what works and what doesnt. That way... YOU CAN HAVE THE BEST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!

If you think of explicit parkour obstacles your gonna come up with rails and walls, thats it and frankly you can find that anywhere, if your gonna try to expand to avoid that and have moveable convertable obstacles your gonna have a gym, again nothing new.  Try to take inspiration from your own favorite hotspots, look at mundate architecture that happens to be great for parkour although not intended to be, picture the perfect pk heaven type of architecture, in other words, something thats a little different, something thats not just the ideal environment for specific moves.  What I mean by this is instead of envisioning something thats easy to use and holds no extra variables, try to create something thats an obstacle, that will require creative pk problem solving to traverse.  Take for example, the Dame du Lac (that giant tan fin shaped thing in France that David Belle and them folks are always jumping on in footage.  It's not a typical shape or style but it can be used for some of the greastest parkour because it is different and inspires creativity.  It's this principle that always makes public art pieces throughout cities so good for parkour, they're different.

I agree with quazar on all of that. The best thing you could come up with is something totally unique that makes all kinds of things possible that you dont find anywhere else. In addition to the unique stuff, it is bound to lend itself to more traditional and common movements as well. The dame du lac is a perfect example. So is this "park" we train at in downtown Denver, CO.

Or you could just build another Zen Parkour Park like the one we have here in Maryland at Silver Spring... Ahhh how nice. Its just like Demon's weird block shape thing, except its a ton of wood!

there will be a heavy duty gate around the park so that will be good.  Hey DEMON...you guys were in a NEWS story right...doing Parkour on all of those blocks?  I think I might have seen it.

I want to add a bunch of blocks like the one added below...that would be cool.

I like the unique idea but add some stuff around it also like things to kong and things to combo. Bassically that structure with rails and some seperate blocks and your set, I would go there.

I sure hope that they people allow me to do that.  The only problem is it has to be able to be used by both skateboarders and parkour so...we have to basicly find something that will always have two purposes for.

Think wider man,
ex) a 12 foot wall with a quarterpipe on the other side or something.
It can definitely happen.

theres a giant ESPN skate park at the mall in my area. its actually quite good for a lot of pk training. we even talked to them about doing a demo there but they never got back to us. :-\
