New gym equipment on the way at Ooralea

Council is about to start work on stage two of the Canecutters Drive Park upgrade.

The second stage of this project will see the old exercise equipment replaced with a new outdoor gym.

The new gym will include seven types of fitness equipment including a sit up bench, leg press, cross trainer, chest press, shoulder press, dip station and leg raiser. There will also be two workout zones that can be used for cardio or free weights.

Vegetation works will commence on Tuesday, April 27, 2021, to prepare the area for the installation of the new outdoor gym. Installation works are set to commence in early June, weather permitting.

Residents are advised that some areas of the park will be closed off while this work is taking place.

The first stage of the upgrades at Canecutters Drive Park, which included a new train-inspired playground, are also nearing completion.

The playground is expected to be completed by the end of April, weather permitting.
