Calisthenics area 

An outdoor fitness area is available to use.

There are 10 different workout stations residents can use and features such as parallel bars and rings. These are designed for body weight exercises known as calisthenics.

Calisthenics helps to increase body strength, power and endurance. It is an increasingly popular form of exercise and up until now, there have been few non-commercial facilities locally available.


There are 2 tennis courts at The Parks Community Centre. These are managed externally - for more details visit our tennis page.
