The popularity and demand for outdoor fitness equipment will continue to grow as people place more emphasis on free-to-use, unstructured physical activity opportunities, and governments continue to invest in the promotion and implementation of policies supporting active lifestyles and community connection with a focus on health prevention.
The Guidelines for Planning, Installing and Activating Outdoor Fitness Equipment are designed to inform the decision-making processes to plan, design, install, maintain and activate outdoor fitness equipment in our communities.
They have been developed to provide information and recommendations to the broader industry, focussing on five key areas:
- planning and determining need
- design considerations
- activation and programming
They also provide case studies and examples, and two checklists.
