eYour Chance to Give Your Feedback on Palewell Common & Fields’ Fitness Equipment Improvement Consultation

The Friends of Palewell Common & Fields in conjunction with The London Borough of Richmond upon Thames continuously strive to improve this wonderful local green space and provide the means for all ages to embrace healthy living. As a team they are proposing to replace the existing fitness equipment (FitPoint) with more up-to-date pieces providing further variety for outdoors exercise or to provide a trim trail.

The London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames, says:

Outdoor fitness equipment can be used by both younger and older people to test their strength and exercise their bodies. It can also help to promote participation in sports, reduce isolation in our communities, and is part of the Council’s wider prevention strategy for health.

The current fitness equipment has been well used by the community over the past ten years. However, due to wear and tear we feel that this equipment needs to be replaced in order to provide modern and fit for purpose equipment. With this in mind, we would like to seek wider community input to gauge interest on preferred options going forward.
