Residents can start the new year by getting healthier for free thanks to the brand new outdoor gym in Admirals Park, which was officially opened to the public by the Mayor of Chelmsford.
This is the third outdoor gym maintained by Chelmsford City Council to be opened in the city and has been designed to be used by people of all abilities and fitness levels. The facility includes cycle bikes, rowers, a double leg press, chest press and more. In addition, some of the equipment is set up in pairs, so you can exercise with a friend to give you that little bit more motivation.
The installation of outdoor gyms support Chelmsford City Council’s Health and Well-being Plan and its Physical Activity Strategy.
Funding for the £55,000 facility was provided from planning contributions and the Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy which was proposed by Local Ward Councillors in Marconi, Moulsham & Central and Waterhouse Farm wards.
