As part of the redevelopment of Ernest Grant Park at Thurgoona, we’ll develop an outdoor fitness zone on site.
The installation of the exercise equipment is now complete and open for use. The shade sails will be installed in the new year.
Providing quality public open spaces that are safe, friendly and inclusive can be beneficial for both mental and physical health. Combined with the appropriate supporting infrastructure, it can encourage people to do regular physical activity and help further improve overall health and wellbeing.
As part of the Ernest Grant Park Master Plan works at Thurgoona, we’ll develop an outdoor fitness zone on site, to encourage the community to be healthier and more active.
It will include ten items of exercise equipment with soft-fall under-surfacing, a bike rack, drinking fountain/water station, shade sails, signage and a pathway.
Access to the equipment will be free, and will complement similar fitness areas we’ve built in East Albury, South Albury and at Noreuil Park.
This project is funded through the NSW Government Stronger Country Communities Fund Round two
