Movement Creative

2016 IS A BIG YEAR.  

Break out your fancy training gear because this year's PKNY is going to be a ball!  For the first time we are going to taking you on the ferry to go train and explore new spots on both Governors Island and Staten Island.  In addition, this year we saw the Parkour community come together to help The Movement Creative build a modular parkour playground installation out on Governors Island!  What better way to break it in than a good ol' fashion jam--New York's national jam!

Below you can find the schedule, maps, contacts, and links to all of our partnering organizations that have come together to make this jam happen!  

If you have never attendED PKNY, here a few things to know:

  • PKNY is FREE to attend, street parking abundant in the boroughs, and housing cheap for those coming out of town
  • The New York parkour community is diverse and welcoming: practitioners of all ages and abilities are encouraged to come out and move, learn, and train with us!
  • We prioritize safety & respect.  We have selected spots that are parkour-friendly, and will *leave no trace.  We also will have first-aid/cpr certified instructors present at the event and

GOVERNORS ISLAND - All Day

To kick off the jam, we'll be tearing up the island for most of the day. Governors is packed full of awesome parkour gems, including Birds Nest, the Hills, and of course, the POPUP parkour playground.  Plus, the island has a plethora of dope food trucks, outdoor cafes, and picnic areas.

Not to worry though, if you (somehow) get tired of the island some of NYC's best spots scattered around battery park city are just a boat ride away.

Getting There

There are ferries running from both Downtown Brooklyn (11AM) and Manhattan (10AM) all day. All ferries before 11:30 are FREE to ride to the island, and it is always FREE to return.  If you happen to come late, it will cost $2 round trip.  Don't trust us? Use the Governors Island Website to check ferry times.
