This parkour spot in theNetherlands is located in Eindhoven, a city in North-Brabant. Castle Garden isa unique spot for parkour that you can’t find anywhere else in the Netherlands.

Castle Garden

Castle Garden is one of the coolest and most popular parkour parks in the Netherlands. This spot is located at Kastelenplein Street. It used to be a (wheelchair) entry that led to a sauna, but nowadays this spot has become an abandoned terrain. A while back this spot was discovered by Bart van der Linden. The parkour park consists of walls, platforms, bars, and roofs. The combination of these elements creates a spot for free runners with many possibilities and challenges.


Unique in the Netherlands

This parkour park is popular among the Dutch freerunning community and beyond. In the Netherlands, the infrastructure is built as efficiently as possible, unlike in some other countries. Unfortunately, this sucks for free runners because the more walls, the better. What makes Castle Garden unique is that there’s a lot of height difference between the walls which is a rare sight in a flat country as the Netherlands.


Private spot

Think you can reach Castle Garden just like that? Sike. The terrain is surrounded by a fence which you have to climb, but don’t get discouraged. The Eindhoven freerun community has permission to practice their sick parkour tricks on this terrain. This spot is even maintained by the local freerunners. Even though the fence can be a pain in the ass to reach the area, the fence also has its benefits. You won’t be bothered by any bypassers or traffic close to the spot. Sounds like a solid private parkour spot if you ask us.


Parkour community Eindhoven

Eindhoven has a vibrant parkour community. Professional freerunners from all over the world travel to Eindhoven to train at Castle Garden. The first street competition was hosted at this spot in 2019. During the event of owning the spot of Commit Freerun a speed competition was held here. One of the best free runners participated in this. Castle Garden was the ideal spot for the freerun competitions.
