To support projects which encourage local people to be active, learn and play together.
This project involves installing outdoor fitness equipment including climbing ladders, pull up bars etc in Bishops Park near the existing skate boarding equipment. It will be suitable for all ages, hard wearing and low maintenance. It would increase the health and fitness of users and provide fitness equipment in a safe environment. We hope it will attract users that are put off by the high membership fees of gyms. All the family can visit as Bishops Park, users of different ages can use the equipment at the same time and enjoy the other areas of interest within the Park. This could appeal to mothers with young children, older people, young children and teenagers as well as adults and 5-13 year olds. Body weight (calisthenic) exercise is becoming more and more popular, and this equipment will be a well-used addition to the park. Along with the exercise equipment will be seating, planting and landscaping. This project is supported by the Friends of Bishops Park and the Council.
What we'll deliver:

The Council have offered to maintain and inspect the equipment if the funding can be found Bishops Park is a large Park and will attract local people and people from further away not just in the immediate area. It is located along the River Thames and is accessible from the Thames Trail and many local bus, underground and train routes. It is wanted by the Local Friends Group and is supported by Hammersmith Council who would like to see the project delivered too. There is a café nearby to meet up and there will be provision for seating and landscaping around the site. It will be free to use!
