Outdoor exercise program Gyms in Parks will return to Bosnjak Park

Fairfield City Council’s popular ‘Gyms in Parks’ outdoor exercise program will return in August, utilising gym equipment installed last year at Bosnjak Park.

The ‘Gyms in Parks’ program will run for 6 weeks from 1 August 2017, between 9.30am and 10.30am each Tuesday and Thursday.

Mayor of Fairfield City Frank Carbone said the program has been well received by the community and encourages people to get outdoors and stay active.

“Council is delighted that the ‘Gyms in Parks’ program has been such a huge success among the Fairfield City community,” Mayor Carbone said.

“Council encourages people of all ages to get active and remain healthy, which is why we continue to run our popular outdoor exercise program for those who wish to keep active and enjoy the outdoors.

“The health and wellbeing of our community is incredibly important and Council continues to construct walking circuit paths and gym equipment in parks throughout our City as a cost effective way to assist the community in getting fit and healthy.

“If participants want something more challenging after attending our free ‘Gyms in Parks’ program, we encourage them to join Fairfield City Leisure Centres where a variety of fitness classes are available.”

Interested community members are advised to wear comfortable exercise clothes and shoes, a hat and sunscreen. They should also bring water and a towel or gym mat.

The ‘Gyms in Parks’ program was developed to encourage residents to utilise Council equipment and paths. It was rolled out as part of the Fairfield Health Partnership between Council and the South West Sydney Local Health District.
