Fresh Air Fitness Outdoor Gym at Hammersmith Park

Hammersmith Park, Shepherds Bush Outdoor Gym Project

COUNCILS

Hammersmith Park sits at the heart of the community providing green, fresh, healthy space for city dwellers to reap the health and wellbeing benefits of the outdoors. The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea already understood the huge benefits of outdoor gym equipment for communities, and after a rigorous tender process chose to partner with Fresh Air Fitness for this exceptional project.

Fresh Air Fitness Outdoor Gym at Hammersmith Park

The Background

Open spaces and green parks bring cohesion to local communities, boosting mental and physical wellbeing by providing space to exercise in the outdoors. As part of the council's continued commitment to improve its parks and open spaces, and having seen the enormous success of the outdoor gym at their Kensington Memorial Park, Kensington & Chelsea Borough Council proposed to install a new outdoor gym in Hammersmith Park.

Hammersmith and Fulham residents were at the heart of their strategy and with extensive consultation including a dedicated website, locals agreed an outdoor gym facility would benefit the community.

A suitable site was identified and recommended to transform a little utilised patch of barren land into an outdoor fitness zone with multiple pieces of innovative outdoor gym equipment. Fresh Air Fitness won the tender, becoming their chosen provider.

The Challenge

The outdoor gym needed to meet the diverse needs of the local population. The equipment had to be suitable for beginners to advanced levels of fitness and a wide potential age range of users. It was critical that pieces were simple to use and exercise suggestions were available.

Inclusivity and accessibility was important when selecting each piece of outdoor gym equipment.

Due to the natural and green nature of the park, a neutral colourway and design would be central to the finished product, to blend seamlessly with its surroundings and create a space to switch off and escape from the hustle and busy of city life.

The Solution

The innovative, Fresh Air Fitness Outdoor Gym included 22 user stations with the following pieces:

Accessible Combi: Pull Down and Chest Press (2 users)
• Resistance bench press
• Surface graphics of an agility ladder
• 3x Plyo boxes
• Hip twister (3 users)
• Cross trainer
• Recumbent bike
• Rower
• Leg press (2 users)
• Surface graphics of lunge circle for body weight exercise
• Accessible arm and pedal bike
NEW Training Rig with accessible parallel bars

The surfacing selected was 'wetpour' which is safe, durable, and permeable, allowing the site to be accessible to all, and available year-round.
