We've already raised £28,922 for our fitness trail! Help us reach our final total by pledging so we can provide this fantastic opportunity for local residents to start being active together in a fun friendly environment in Harraby, South Carlisle. The outdoor community fitness park and 1k trail will be open 7 days a week, and will be free and accessible for ages 13 years up to enjoy. The fitness park will be part of a 1k circuit around the Harraby campus. We've done an initial consultation with local residents, groups and the primary school on the campus. We received positive feedback that people that want the fitness park and would use it. We plan to do another consultation with different options for the equipment and trail in Autumn. By providing this fantastic facility more people may feel motivated to get active and enjoy engaging in this type of activity and access support, by taking up some of the other health/fitness/sports sessions based within our community centre.

What we'll deliver:

  • Install an outdoor community fitness park with a 1k circuit in Harraby
  • Encourage families, children and adults to be more active
  • Enable families and friends to get fit together for free

Why it's a great idea:

There is little opportunity for adults and families in particular to be more active together in a fun friendly and free environment and at their own pace. By having a community fitness park that can be accessed by all, we are creating the opportunity for more people to become physically active. We hope that this will be the first step toward changing peoples attitude to physical activity and healthy lifestyles.

Steps to get it done:

  • Equipment installed and open for use by Easter 2019
