We’re building H&F’s eighth outdoor gym in Hammersmith Park – and we need your help!
The gym will be installed in the triangular area of land by Wood Crescent and the BBC Television Centre, across from Wood Crescent Playground.
We’re working closely with the Friends of Hammersmith Park to design the new space, but we also want to hear from you on what type of equipment you’d like installed.
Choices include a leg press, calisthenics fitness frame, stationary bike and cross trainer. Accessible equipment will also be installed, this can include a hand bike, hip twister, lat pull and chest press. Or visit our outdoor gym webpage for ideas.
What would you like to see? Tell our Parks teams by the deadline of Friday 15 September by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
