10:58am Friday 11th October 2013 in News
A DUDLEY park has opened a new outdoor gym in a bid to encourage people to get fitter for free.
The gym, at Buffery Park is suitable for people of all ages and abilities and is the latest in a number of outdoor gyms across the borough.
The equipment has been funded following a grant of £20,000 to the Friends and Residents of Buffery Park from Ibstock Cory Environmental Trust.
The equipment has cost a total of £44,000 and additional costs were covered through community donations and area 106 contributions.
Councillor Tracy Wood, Dudley cabinet member for environment and culture, said: “I’d like to thank The Friends of Buffery Park for anchoring this installation at the park, which looks fantastic.
“Outdoor gyms are very popular with our borough residents as they really help with physical and mental wellbeing.”
