The City of Newcastle launched a fitness station project, which included fitness stations in 6 locations along the Stockton Foreshore.
After consultation with the local community, on design elements and other considerations, they installed a combination of ParkFit items at each of the 6 locations, along 3km of the pathway, to suit a wide range of users.
Products included: Bench Press, Push-up Bar, Chin-Up Bar, Shoulder Press, Stretch Station, Sit-Up Board, Aerobic Walker, Cycle Seat, Parallel Bars, Leg Lift/ Dip Bar, Sit-Up Board Inclined, Pylo Box Jump, Quad Extension.
All six stations were built within walking distance of the recently completed $2 million South Stockton Active Hub.
Lord Mayor Nuatali Nelmes said the provision of new exercise parks, such as this, would help meet the City’s population growth targets and reduce obesity and health risks.
“By building these new parks we are also increasing our commitment to supporting the community to be physically active, contributing to improved health outcomes and lowering obesity levels,”
We all know that getting active improves our sense of well-being, so we are very pleased to be delivering these new facilities for Novocastrians to stay fit and healthy.” the Lord Mayor said.
