WORK has finished on the installation of exercise equipment in Moulder Park, with soft-fall and rubber ground covers going in this week.
The equipment included in the six new exercise stations was installed earlier this year at a cost of $50,000, with $30,000 coming from the Regional and Local Community Infrastructure Program scheme and $20,000 from Orange City Council .
Orange councillor Glenn Taylor said the equipment would be a great asset for the people of Orange and give new options to people interested in staying fit.
“A resident who’d seen some similar equipment in Scone raised it with me originally and I was pleased to put it to a council meeting,” he said.
“The walking paths from Elephant Park past the pool to the velodrome are regularly used by hundreds of people each week as they walk, jog and exercise their dogs.
“It’s great to see many people have already started to use the equipment and the rubber surface and the soft-fall under the chin-up bar will make it safer and better to use.”
The equipment has been designed for outdoor use and the moving parts use a person’s own weight as resistance, so it’s safe for people of all ages.
The area has been roped off for the past couple of days while the surface, which is made from recycled rubber particles, cures.
It is expected to re-open by tomorrow.
