Established in 2011 in Bursa, Metrikparks has set out to build world-class parks for those people for whom action sports are not just some leisure activity, but a way of life, and in doing so hopes to help this community grow and thrive.
Motivated by the love of nature and the outdoors, as well as a strong passion for extreme sports, Mertikparks’ main goal is to work towards the emergence of a vibrant local scene that will one day put Turkey on the global map of extreme sports.
There is no reason why Turkey should not produce world-renown snowboarders, skaters or BMXers; Olympic-medalist freestyle skiers or mountain bikers. It has been proven time and again that when our athletes are provided with the necessary conditions and opportunities, success comes within their reach. When it comes to extreme sports, the existence of quality parks, designed and realized by professionals, comes chief among these conditions; since these are truly individual sports that require only the basic gear, what really matters is a place to develop your skills.
By building extreme parks in every corner of our country, together with our expert business partners who lead their fields, having built around the world hundreds of parks from beginner to pro levels, we aim to fulfill this need and facilitate athletes that can challenge world stars.
Yet, keeping true to their roots and culture, today, as well as in the past, extreme sports are more about challenging oneself, testing one’s own limits and pushing to go past them – what matters most is not rivalry against others but forcing the self to do the best one can, not giving up, being unafraid of failure, and getting back up after falling to try again. And the most important of all, doing these not for accolades, medals or fame, but for the fun of it – So, these are good values, quite unusual – there is a great sense of community etc. – That is why we aim to popularize these sports in Turkey, for all age groups and skill levels, but especially among the younger generations –
