New exercise park for seniors

The recently opened seniors exercise park features specialised equipment to build fitness, core strength and balance for older users.

This new park has been created In partnership with the National Ageing Research Institute (NARI), with funding support from the State Trustee. It features 16 different exercise stations, shade sails, drinking fountain, bench seating, and a rubber cushion flooring layer.  

NARI has done extensive research into the positive effects of sustained engagement in physical activity on both mental health and physical outcomes through a community-based program at seniors exercise parks.  The outdoor equipment features multiple stations specifically designed for older people to improve their balance, strength, mobility and function and clear instructions at each station. Plus each station has a QR code that can be scanned on your phone and links to video demonstrations for on the spot instruction.

The new exercise park is available for anyone to use but we hope to encourage our senior residents to give it a try.

The seniors exercise park is located next to the new Carrington Park community multipurpose facility, 20 Oconnor Rd, Knoxfield.  See map for location.

Exercise programs will be developed and promoted later in the year. For more information, please contact our Customer Service on 9298 8000.
