Exercise equipment in parks
Woollahra Council has 3 parks which offer fitness equipment, providing an opportunity to exercise and get fit outdoors.
The exercise equipment is different in each park, ranging from simple static equipment ideal for chin-ups, sit-ups and step-ups, to new interactive and movable equipment featuring cardio and resistance features (similar to indoor gym equipment) such as rowing and stepping machines.
