Fitpark Phase 3

Witnessing the impact and benefits of the outdoor Fitpark created on the north side of our property, we have determined to enhance the space with something for kids 5-12 years old.

Bike Station

Since we are on a busy cycling route, another enhancement to our FitPark will be a Bike Fix station will include all the tools necessary to perform basic bike repairs and maintenance, from changing a flat to adjusting brakes and derailleurs. 

The tools are securely attached to the stand with stainless steel cables and tamper-proof fasteners. Hanging the bike from the hanger arms allows the pedals and wheels to spin freely while making adjustments. And a bike pump will provide inflation for a soft tire. 

Less fence, more fun

To add an activity station for kids we will need to use space from our existing fenced courtyard. By moving the fence line back to the concrete planter we can gain 11 feet of depth and up to 25 feet length beyond the available lawn space.

An Open Space for Everyone

We hope this area will be a place for intergenerational connection and community building around shared wellness goals. It is our joy to offer you free access to this fitness equipment. All we ask in return is that  you use the equipment as intended and leave the area clean and tidy.  If you would like to pay it forward and contribute to future improvements click here to donate

We expect at least 5,000 uses of this fitness park based on a modest estimate that 15 individuals on average will access it daily.  The fitness equipment is manufactured and guaranteed for decades of use.

Many grandparents in our neighbourhood are supportive caregivers to their grandchildren. We intend to purchase fun and aesthetically pleasing products that will help motivate participation and use, supporting both fitness and mental wellness.

This area can provide a range of opportunities to meet the fitness goals of all ages and skill levels. There are 500 households in a one-kilometre radius and 120 high school students who are attending classes in our ground-level classrooms.
