Cork City Council Installs Eleven New Outdoor Gyms
Cork City Council, in association with Cork Sports Partnership and Cork Education and Training Board, are in the process of installing eleven new outdoor gyms in our Parks around the city. These clustered Callisthenic Gyms, with age-friendly and accessible elements, have proven very popular at Tramore Valley Park, Harty’s Quay and Ballincollig Regional Park. The new locations are:
Following a pilot program to provide people with the confidence and skills to use the gyms, a series of free sessions, given by trained instructors, are being offered to the public. These sessions will be open to all ages and abilities, with some targeted at young women who can be too intimidated to use the gyms.
These sessions are all about giving people knowledge and the confidence to come to these gyms with a friend, a parent or a sibling and use themselves. This program is starting off with five locations, Gerry O’Sullivan Park, Tramore Valley Park, John O’Callaghan Park, Murphy’s Farm and Lough Mahon but will be rolled out to other areas in due course.
