This week, Councillor Rodney Degens of Coffs Harbour City Council put forward the idea of a playground for seniors? Some thought his idea was crazy. What, swings and slides for granny? Not exactly, the Councillor was putting forward the concept of outdoor gyms accessible to seniors as a means of getting seniors in the community more active.

As Councillor Degens put it, “As we are all getting older and in our turn becoming seniors, shouldn’t we desire that these seniors remain as healthy as they can, as flexible and as self-reliant as possible?” The article grabbed the attention of the media and was run by the local daily and radio station.

The idea of calling outdoor gyms ‘Playgrounds for Seniors’ is a good one. After all, working out in parks should be fun!

    We are so thrilled that a_space did our school playground. Blackheath School P&C raised enough money to put in play equipment and a_space were really thoughtful and sensitive to our budget. The design, landscaping, project management and installation team were completely professional and approachable through every stage of the process. The children at Blackheath Public School are absolutely thrilled with their new equipment – the teachers can’t keep them off it.

    “This project was excellent, ran smoothly, was well coordinated and completed ahead of schedule. A new rubber surface, some new equipment and shade installation has given this playground a great face lift and an extended life”
