Barking Sporthouse will open London’s first trampoline park next month.
Spanning 1,800sqm, the Extreme Trampoline Park at Barking Sporthouse and Gym will provide space for 125 trampolines – allowing residents to bounce their way off the sofa and into an active lifestyle from November 14.
Interconnected trampolines will complement air bag pits, rope swings and basketball nets in a bid to provide “non-stop freestyle trampoline workouts and play”.
Charity GLL has overseen the park’s seven-month construction, with director for development Chris Symons promising borough bouncers an accessible calorie-burner.
He said he looks forward to welcoming the community into the park, which is designed to offer anyone from toddlers to older jumpers an opportunity to explore “extreme leisure”.
“We are just putting the final touches to our trampoline park,” he said. “With over 100 top quality trampolines it will be the best in London.
“Co-located with a gym, skatepark and climbing zone – Barking Sporthouse sets the standard for extreme leisure in the capital.”
As well as its “main jump area”, the park boasts foam pits, two dodgeball areas and a “fidget ladder”, designed to give customers a new workout every time they visit.
