Carisbrook residents can now be more active, more often with the installation of new outdoor exercise equipment at Market Reserve.
The new outdoor exercise equipment is now complete and ready for use and is thanks to the Victorian Government’s Healthy Loddon Campaspe initiative
The new equipment features two exercise stations, providing a total of 4 pieces of exercise equipment. The equipment includes a Dexterity Builder, Pull Downs, Aerobic Cycle and Leg Press.
A water fountain, thanks to Central Highlands Water, has also been installed nearby to keep users hydrated.
Central Goldfields Shire Tullaroop Ward Councillor Anna De Villiers said the new equipment will help provide health and wellbeing benefits for the local community.
“The outdoor fitness equipment will provide opportunities for free physical activity for children, young people, families and senior members of the Carisbrook community – it will also be a drawcard for residents from surrounding communities.
“The project aligns with our Active Central Goldfields Recreation and Open Space Strategy 2020-2029 as well as our Health and Wellbeing Plan which aims to promote opportunities for our community to be active, more often.
“Thank you to the Victorian Government’s Healthy Loddon Campaspe initiative who have also funded equipment in Dunolly and Talbot – which have both proved popular!
“More recently, outdoor exercise equipment was also installed at the Adventure Playground in Maryborough – this project was also funded by the Victorian Government through the Regional Jobs and Infrastructure Fund.”
