Local calls for a fitness park in Sandstone Point have been answered, with the brand new exercise equipment unveiled in November.
Councillor for Division 1 Brooke Savige said the $64,000 investment would give local residents more opportunities to head outdoors and get active.
“I’m thrilled that this is open ahead of the summer school holidays for locals to enjoy and hope it will be a positive motivator for New Year’s Resolutions once Christmas feasting is done,” she said.
“Council values healthy, active lifestyles and we always want to see residents out and about getting fit.
“I want to thank local residents for putting this on Council’s agenda and I’m proud to be able to have delivered it.”
The fitness stations include nine different pieces of equipment including a butterfly press, back extension, pull up bar, cycle seat, trapeze rings, leg lift and dip bar, sit up board, shoulder wheel, fitness stencils - ladder and circles
“Whether you want to get fit or recovering from injury, this new exercise equipment installation will give the community greater opportunity to exercise for free and boost social interaction,” she said.
“Come down and get involved, even Arnie had his first day at the gym!”
The new fitness park is located at Sandstone Point Community and Sports Complex.
