The Vyne Field Outdoor Gym

Gary Cordery By Gary Cordery

We want to provide an outdoor gym on the Vyne Field in Knaphill, Woking, encouraging more residents to make use of green spaces in the borough to keep active.

Knaphill Idea stage

This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

Wokings Play strategy has long identified this site as suitable for outdoor fitness equipment, and in order to deliver the strategy we are now looking to fulfill the fitness equipment aspect of it.
We will use an existing outdoor gym supplier to install and create the Outdoor Gym adding additional facilities for residents to make use of. The Vyne field already has a Multi Use Games Area, sports pitches and organised boot camp sessions making it an ideal sight for this type of facility.
Our next step is to get the gym equipment and installation ordered and in place and this is what we are looking to raise funds for with this project.

What we'll deliver:

  • Create additional free opportunities for residents to keep active and stay healthy.
  • Develop opportunities, through our partners to run organised exercise sessions for people to attend
  • Encourage use of Wokings Green Space.
  • Provide additional value to existing boot camp operators who are mainly small independent local businesses.
  • Ensure once equipment is in place its maintained and is part of our routine inspection programme.

Why it's a great idea:

• Research shows that exercising outdoors boosts people’s physical and mental health more than going to indoor gyms, even in winter.

• Outdoor gym’s offer plenty of fresh air, its fun, flexible (you can go when you want) and you can use it with friends and family.

• Using it is FREE!

Steps to get it done:

  • Ensure value for money with equipment that meets relevant safety standards.
  • Manage site works to ensure it is kept safe and that everything is installed in line with agreed plans.
  • Regularly inspect equipment once installed.
