Hobsons Bay City Council received multiple requests from the community to install new Outdoor Fitness Equipment. Cherry Lake, Altona was chosen as an ideal location with its expanse of parkland set beside a significant lake. Council approached a_space to develop a design combining a mix of dynamic and static equipment to suit all ages and abilities.
We developed a design with multiple stations catering to different user groups at specific locations around the Lake. At one location a widely accessible gym incorporating dynamic items was proposed. At another location close to car parking and public facilities, a mix of items offering greater challenge were recommended.
The outdoor gym stations at Cherry Lake have become a popular place for gathering and exercising helping to drive greater health and wellbeing in the local community.
