“Earlier this year we asked our community what they’d like to see in their parks and reserves, and this has been part of the outcome of that community feedback,” he said.

“With all kinds of different equipment and easy-to-use electronic instructions on our newer pieces, these additions are the perfect place to start your fitness journey.

“We’ve placed the equipment in spots that make it easy to work out without being far from playgrounds, or open parks for kids to play while you exercise.

“There’s even areas where the equipment is spaced apart for users to run or walk between different kinds of workouts in some of our bigger reserves.”
