I don't see what a bear has anything to do with this
I like Tricking and Free Running, i don't think i actually do parkour, because i do it for fun and self expression, which would change the term to free running.

I've had this in my head for a really long time now.

There are two schools that I live next to, one an elementary school and one a middle school, barely 20 feet from each other. They both have some really nice isolated spots to train in, but it's sort of misleading. They're basically one school, but while I hoped to train at the elementary school, I noticed the dreaded sign on the middle school gates: No Trespassing. I wasn't sure whether this applied to the elementary school, and I wouldn't dare just go in and find out while I'm in there without talking to anyone (my sister goes to this school, and being kicked out + having to pick her up = bad).

Should I just go in there one day and ask someone if it's okay to be in there after school hours, or would that arouse suspicion?
dude elementary schools are some of the best places to train and learn new things, as long as your not up on the roof there shouldn't be any problem, when people see you training they mostly just let you be, now if you were just hanging out there with no purpose, that would be different

It just becomes natural after a while. I've seen some people notice places I would never have thought of.
The basics are like using picnic tables for vaults.
Use Rails for percisions.
Etc.

I always try to find spots on foot, because you can get into areas and search around better that way.

Downtown areas are the best.  Often offices or other buildings will try to design quieter areas inclosed with buildings on all sides.  Those spots usually have some fun areas and architecture.

If you are in smaller cities or towns, it will be a little more tough.  Like everyone else said: schools, parks, etc.

If there are any nature trails or other natural parks with trees, boulders, or cliffs, those can be excellent.  One of my favorite areas is not even in the city, but out in nature.
