Outdoor Exercise Park

Have you been wondering about the apparatus beside the community hall? Could it be minimalist metal sculpture, or devices for punishing wayward board members? Nope – it’s an Adult Fitness park. The 11 stations are designed to provide public access to safe fitness equipment. It’s the first of its kind in Calgary, says local resident Lorne Cowan, who first saw the equipment in a park in BC while on holidays. “I tried it out and I thought it was great,” he said. “These units would be ideal to help seniors in our community keep it, as well as adults of all ages.” Each unit is free-standing and designed to be used by people 16 years of age and older. A central panel explains the proper use of each piece of equipment, and units are built to remain outdoors in all seasons.
