Gloucester City Council Outdoor Gym

The Site:
Gloucester City Council – Gloucester Park.

The Brief:
The Client were looking for a large community focused outdoor gym to increase fitness levels within the local residents. For the budget specified the Caloo traditional outdoor gym was the best solution. This meant maximum gym units could be installed at the best possible price. The green and silver colour combination blended in nicely with the green spaces.

Equipment Installed:

-Community Outdoor Gym Bundle – 8 Units
-Additional Lat Pull Unit

The Challenges:
The installation of this site provided a few challenges for the team. Working within a neighbourhood park meant the public had access 24/7. Protective fencing was installed to allow the team to work safely in the designated area, this also helped limited access and protect the public while the works were completed.

Outcome:
The installation of the outdoor gym within the park has proved a great success with local residents. Councillor Jennie Watkins – Cabinet member for communities and neighbourhoods says “ It has been a great example of where communities have got involved and been able to make, what has already been a great asset, even better. This is a great free and accessible way to use gym equipment in the outdoors, promoting physical activity for both physical and mental health.”
