Eureka Park fitness ready to goMatthew Day
South Derbyshire District Council have installed their third outdoor fitness scheme in the impressive Eureka Park. The District Council sort tenders from a variety of contractors and Streetscape were chosen to supply and install the project.
The items were selected by a consultation group made up of Cllr Sandra Wyatt, Pauline Wakefield (Volunteer),Karen Richards, Mick Lunn and Dawn Husson, along with input from 1211 Squadron Air Cadets, who are based in the park. Comments from the consultation process favouring our equipment were “Eye catching and has more variety” and “Lots of pair activities”
The result was 9 items of fitness equipment chosen to allow a full body workout. There can be an impressive number of users ,15, challenging themselves with 13 different activities.

Funding for the outdoor gym has been provided by Public Health money £5k and funding from the Active Grove Project £10k.
