Parkour Enthusiasts and Professionals against the ban of Parkour in NYC

2,753 Signatures Goal: 5,000

Park Police in the state parks within the "Battery" area of Manhattan are now enforcing a "No Parkour" rule, punishable by a 300$ fine. Practitioners have been training here, and all over the city, for nearly a decade now, and have had virtually zero reports of vandalism, property damage, or anti-social behavior. Putting a ban on something these people love is both unfair to them, and borederline unconstitutional, as these practitioners (quite successfully) make it a point to disturb no one, andpreserveand respect the surroundings they train on and in via their "Leave No Trace" philosophy. These people aren't hurting anyone or anything, and should be allowed to continue doing so freely. These kids don't want to just go home and play video games, and you shouldn't ask them to.

    Parkour can be practiced without being a public nuisance and it also breathes life into a decaying city. There are many other things you could do for your city. Do not try to ban parkour
