The City of Kwinana, supported by a Stronger Community Grant, has installed a series of new outdoor exercise stations in Honeywood Estate, Wandi.
The four exercise stations, installed in June 2018, cater for residents of varying physical and fitness ability with both upper-body and lower-body resistance pieces that aim to improve the strength and condition of users.
Mayor Carol Adams said installation of this equipment was made possible thanks to a $20,000 grant as part of the Australian Government’s Stronger Communities Grant and had been supported by the local federal member for Brand, Madeleine King.
“The new exercise equipment installed at Honeywood, in Wandi is now one of eight stations located throughout the City of Kwinana, that provide residents with a free, purpose built way to maintain their health and fitness within their local neighborhood,” she said.
“Not only has this equipment been designed to suit the needs of the able bodied person, but a number of the pieces have been designed to be accessible and to also cater to people with disabilities.”
As identified by the community in the City’s Strategic Community Plan, the installation of the equipment aligns to the identified objective of a healthy and active community with services for everyone’s needs.
“The equipment has been well thought out and located between two local parks, and near to local amenities including shelters and barbecue facilities, to connect the areas and help local residents integrate exercise into their lifestyles,” Mayor Adams said.
The new exercise equipment is accessible by the general public and can be located off Bruny Meander in Wandi.
