Hot Spots
« on: September 18, 2009, 09:35:45 PM »
So i was on the way home from a cross country meet and stopped to eat at a restraint named Kopp's. When i arrived a realized that this courtyard they had amazing architecture for parkour especially precisions. Not many rails but a ridiculous amount of concrete ledges, curbs, stairs, and benches of a variety of heights. Of course I couldn't resist the temptation of doing at least a few precisions as i a waited my food. Just thought I would put it out there for anyone in that area, seeing as you can't scout every where. Feel free to post any other suggested spots in your city or in others. Just include a brief description and the address.

Running is the only transportation that gives you complete freedom and parkour allows the freedom to continue through our urbanized world.

I've been here many times, and every time I always think of the great opportunities for parkour.  It is pretty far from my home though.

The Green Lake Conference Center in Green Lake. I just had a religous retreat here and even upon arrival I thought the place would be amazing for parkour.  It sits on the shore of green lake and sits on just a huge chuck of land. Parkour advantages areas are concentrated around the main conference center. It has just an aboundence of different obsticals like walls ranging from 3 to 20 feet, rails, benchs, natural rock, stairs ranging from 3 steps to two fleights, and also just interesting outdoor structures. While a little isolated for personal training, I believe it would make make a great jam area with an aboundance of obsticals and group lodging on site. Just an amazing place. They do except non-chruch groups and with their policy on things like skateboards and rollarblades I doubt there would be an issue with parkour.

University of Wisconsin Green Bay. Just checked it out yesterday and I was very impressed. If anyone is around that area you should check it out. Oh and you guys who are more experienced should head out that way too, I wanna get connected with the PK community in the state (I have some other guys who are with me as well who I like to train with.)

Cudahy:

Pulaski Park Pavillion, has various platforms and a playground close enough + stairwell.

By the lake: Off Lake Dr. and Ramsey Ave. follow the trail back, you'll see a dip leading to a sandy area, the dell here is pretty nice.

Kosciusko (Something super-Polish)? School, Has sever layer-edges, and a nice big-cast staircase.

Off of Ramsey Ave. is an unfinished Condo complex, the elevator shaft is still erected.

Public Library has very few waist-level ledges, good for a rainy-day, also has a small concrete wall good for vaults.

Behind the K-mart/ Sears Outlet is a truck-load drop, and some other fun suprises, definitely worth a look or two.

St. Francis:

The public Library has a fair bit of wall/ledge about it, cop stop is right across the street.

South Milwaukee:

Off 11th St. and Elm St. one block West of N. Chicago, is a bridge, just a bit further west is a path that goes into the woods, several bike jumps and trees here, easily useable for flip practice.

Seven bridges, has several dells which have stiarcases and paths on them, excellent for endurance training, build that cardio!

E. Milwaukee Ave. starting at 6th street, if you go westward you'll find several small spots good for just about whatever, especially the train station.

Sunrise Shopping Center (Strip-mall), the area behind it is excellent for wall-work.

Bayview:

Behind Outpost natural Foods, post-10PM is an excellent practice wall, it has a lead-up as well.

Across the street is KK park, has a pretty fun wall here, the restroom pavillion can be fun if you work on it correctly.

Humboldt park Ampitheatre, the stage has two stair sets, and the stage is a stair too.

Milwaukee, if you follow the Milwaukee River Walk-way, you can find some beautiful pots, particularly around the statues.
So long as I have parkour I'm okay.

Cudahy:

S. Packard Ave., Packard Plaza, back-lot, there's a staircase and a few railings here, back of outlet is a garage are, drops fairly quick, excellent for vault practicing.

Spotted and awesome location in Cudahy today, excellent rail system, brilliant for base vaults and under-railing.

Cudahy, WI
S. Nicholson Ave. Just south of Layton Ave.

Off on the west side of the road, series of multiple red rails just sitting there.

Went to get some hot apple cider from a place called Fixx, right across the street is a banquet hall, Attman's or something.

Saint Francis:

On the corner of Sivyer Ave. and Packard Ave. Just north of Howard Ave.

This beautiful area features walls of 4 feet up to eight feet, bike racks, tables and a ten foot tall fence with plenty of space to work with.

It's a short line, but it's an excellent place to train at.

Saint Francis:
Vretnar Park

It' just North of Lunham Ave. on the end of Kirwood Ave. just west of the High School of Saint Francis.

There's a stage/theatre here, with bars to practice underbars, as well as a few retaining walls and a covered pic-nic table.

I don?t quite understand the purpose of a mifi. Assuming you are travelling you would want an unlocked phone, so why not just use your phone and setup a wireless hotspot?PC
First and foremost I?d rather have an unlocked phone first than a mifi. However I do have a mifi as a secondary device with built in Sim for those times when I arrive in country and dont want to mess about looking for the best phone/data sim package.
