Proposed New Outdoor Gym at Snape Park in Maroubra Now Open for Feedback

Community consultation is ongoing for a proposed new outdoor gym at Snape Park, Maroubra.

Randwick City Council has unveiled its plan to establish a new outdoor fitness facility at Snape Park as part of its Open Space and Recreation Strategy which aims to provide more access to free, informal outdoor recreation opportunities. The gym is proposed to be located on the corner of Percival and Storey Streets, next to the children’s playground.

Beginning with the installation of Randwick’s first outdoor gym in 2013 at Maroubra Beach, the number of installations has since grown including gyms delivered at Clovelly, Chifley, Frenchmans Bay, Kensington, Coogee and Malabar. Another new outdoor gym is also being planned for Barwon Park in Matraville.

Once complete, the Snape Park Gym will deliver a range of equipment for personal fitness including pull down, leg press, elliptical trainer, aerobic cycle, dexterity builder and a challenge station with roman rings and gorilla bars. Made from corrosion-resistant metal with attached instructional signage, each outdoor gym equipment is designed for use regardless of one’s age, abilities and fitness level.

The plan also includes a walking track around the perimeter of the fitness gym complete with distance markings to allow older users to determine the farthest they reach in 6 minutes and encourage them to improve it by regularly using the track.

The community is encouraged to have their say on the proposal which can be made by:

  • Taking a short survey
  • Dropping a pin on the map – to suggest a different location to the one being proposed
  • Sending comments to the General Manager via email with the subject “Snape Park outdoor gym” to or by post to 30 Frances Street, Randwick 2031.

The consultation period runs until 26 April 2022.
