We want to make sure everyone is able to get out, be active and get fit for free, that’s why we have been steadily installing new and upgrading old outdoor fitness equipment all across our City.

There are now 30 outdoor fitness gyms around our City, meaning there is one only a short walk or drive away from every household. I want to have outdoor fitness equipment in all 27 suburbs of our City and at least two in our larger suburbs.

Just last week we completed replacing the old outdoor fitness equipment at Cabravale Memorial Park, Cabramatta with more modern equipment that looks better and is safer to use with new softfall.

Outdoor fitness gyms are a great way to get fit and stay healthy at your own pace for free. Overall, we are investing more than $7.9 million this financial year on fitness equipment, playgrounds, sporting courts and sportsfield upgrades.

We have been making a really big investment over the past few years in these facilities to encourage you and your family to get outdoors, get healthy and stay fit.

We will continue to roll out outdoor fitness gyms with work happening now at Tasman Parade, Fairfield West; with more to come in Bareena Park, Canley Vale and Fairfield Heights Park, Fairfield Heights and at Rosford Park, Smithfield.

We are a large City with suburbs stretching from Villawood to Horsley Park and have different types of open spaces to meet the different needs of our community. Some parks have large sporting facilities, some walking facilities, outdoor fitness equipment, walking paths and playgrounds. Many have more than one of these features.

We understand there is a diversity of needs across our City and we will upgrade and build different facilities for all our parks across our City over time, whether it is Exeloos, water refill stations, outdoor fitness gyms, playgrounds, sporting facilities or walking paths or a combination of these.
