Evans Head Fit For Parks - Outdoor Gym Stations
Richmond Valley Council is interested in providing free outdoor gym stations in two locations along Evans Head Riverside to help promote health, fitness and social inclusion. ‘Fit for Parks’ will enhance the Evans Head area, an already popular family holiday destination, which has a very active community, and its riverside is the heart of the town for residents and visitors alike.
The chosen equipment design promotes interaction between users, and encourages people into outdoor activities at these open air venues. Richmond Valley Council has identified increased facilities in parks and open spaces and healthy active lifestyles as key priorities for residents through recent Community Strategic Plan community consultations over the past 18 months.
These stations will encourage exercise and healthy lifestyles as well as promote social inclusion within the community. The stations are also beneficial to seniors with both stations including elements to help increase flexibility and mobility in joints.

Comments regarding the outdoor gym stations are welcome. If you would like to make a submission, address it to the General Manager, Richmond Valley Council, Locked Bag 10, Casino NSW 2470 or email email@example.com
