Construction on the new Malabar outdoor gym is due to start in April 2021, with community feedback indicating a preference for the gym to be located close to the beach.
The request for the gym was first proposed by the Malabar Precinct and supported by Council in early 2019 following positive feedback about outdoor gyms located in other parts of Randwick City, including Clovelly, Chifley, Frenchmans Bay, Kensington and Maroubra.
The gym will provide a range of equipment such as a leg press, aerobic cycle, chest press, elliptical trainer, pull up bar, parallel bars, sit up bench and body rings. The equipment has been specifically chosen to suit people of all ages and fitness levels.
The equipment will be made from corrosion-resistant metal and located on a soft fall rubber surface and instructional signage will be installed on each piece of equipment.
The proposed site has good access and visibility and beautiful views over Malabar Beach. Importantly, the location does not take away space from people using the playground, barbecue, picnic shelters or beach.Back to top
