Play hard, seniors! “You’re never too old to play”


Introducing Sydney’s first outdoor ‘Seniors Fitness Station’ - http://www.agedcareguide.com.au/news.asp?newsid=7039


We love the positive benefits of out door activity centres and the fact that they never close.


The park was designed to suit the needs of older peoples' health and wellbeing.


There are many benefits to using this facility e.g. getting out in the sunshine, fresh air, beautiful maintained grounds, health, wellbeing, socialize, meet friends, strengthen muscles


The park features low impact exercise equipment designed to help older people improve their balance and flexibility.


Some of the equipment they provide are: free runners, sit-up benches, push-up bars, a cycle trainer, body flexor, upper body trainer, water bubbler and bike racks.


There are so many advantages to using this faility for seniors: to build strength, endurance, agility and balance using the wellness circuit. The park is located on the Bay Run in Leichhardt, below the Leichhardt Park Aquatic Centre.



Many other councils offer similar types of low impact exercise equipment suitable for the elderly so check with your local council.


Reap the benefits of exercise, being out doors and meet new people.
