Green gym revolution comes to Enfield
Outside gyms have become an ever increasing trend and an Enfield park will now be joining the revolution.
Enfield playing fields in Caterhatch Lane, Enfield will install £26,000 worth of exercise equipment from push up and arm lifts to cardiovascular work for all ages on Monday, September 9 at 2.00pm.
Proposed by the Friends of Enfield Playing Fields, Town Ward Councillors, Enfield Ignationas Rugby Club and Enfield Town FC have all supported the new Green Gym.
Ruth Hastings Iqball, the Secretary of the Friends of Enfield Playing Fields said: “We are delighted with the new facility. The gym has only just been installed and it is already being well used, which shows how popular it is.
“The Friends of Enfield Playing Fields are always seeking to improve all aspects of our park. At our request, a new children’s playground is currently being installed, which will provide enjoyment and exercise for local children. Enfield's Parks are vital for the health and wellbeing of the borough's residents and need and deserve our support."
Councillor Bambos Charalambous, Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Culture Leisure Youth and Localism said: “This new equipment is a huge asset to Enfield Playing Fields, and gives people who may not be members of a gym the chance to get fit and enjoy themselves in our parks.
“If you are coming along to watch a game in the QEII stadium and are perhaps a little early why not check out the Green Gym? It’s a great way to pass the time.”
