Six new outdoor gyms will be installed in Slough parks very soon.
The council has already installed gyms in Salt Hill Park, Langley Kedermister, Cippenham Recreation Ground and Upton Court Park, encouraging people to get fit in the outdoors.
The new gyms will be installed by The Great Outdoor Gym Company, throughout February and March at:
- Manor Park
- Eltham Avenue
- Rochford Gardens
- Springate Field
- Langley Memorial Park (subject to consultation)
Wexham Parish Council will be funding the installation of a new gym at The Cherries.
Equipment in the outdoor gyms includes cross trainers, static cycles, resistance machines, hand cycles, sit up benches, parallel bars and box jumps.
Councillor Rob Anderson, cabinet member for environment and leisure, said: “We are delighted to be able to install more outdoor gyms in Slough parks, especially as the existing ones have been so well used. It is great to be able to give residents even more opportunities to take control of their own health and stay fit and well.”
