New green gyms in Slough’s parks
If you love being outside and are keen to get fit, new green gyms in our parks could help.
The council has added six new green gyms, bringing the total in the town to 14, with another four in the works.
Created by The Great Outdoor Gym Company (TGO), the gyms are free for all to use, and you can turn up anytime to use them. They cater for the whole community regardless of fitness levels so why not give them a try next time you are out walking in the park?
Cllr Rob Anderson, cabinet member for environment and leisure, said: “The first wave of green gyms were so popular that we were keen to install more to ensure every resident has one in relatively close proximity to where they live.
“They are great for a number of reasons; they are free to use, fun, and encourage you to get out and do your exercise in the fresh air.
“And as part of our #BeRealistic campaign, using a green gym even once a week is a great way to make your pledge to move more.”
The six new gyms can be used at the following locations:
- Manor Park
- Langley Pavilion
- Spring Gate Field
- Rochford Gardens
- Eltham Avenue
- The Cherries (funded by Wexham Parish Council).
The other gyms are at:
- Bloom Park
- Chalvey Recreation Ground
- Cippenham Recreation Ground
- Mercian Way Recreation Ground
- Norway Drive
- Kennedy Park
- Salt Hill Park
- Upton Court Park.
