Walkout Workout in Lewisham

The Great Outdoor Gym launch at Mountsfield Park, Forster Memorial Park Shroffold Playground and Durham Hill

13 Apr 2023

Local residents are invited to a celebration event between 9.30am to 12 noon on Saturday 29 April in Mountsfield Park. At the event, local people will have the opportunity to use the equipment any of four outdoor gyms opened this year in Lewisham.

The gyms have been funded by Sevenfield Primary Care Network (PCN) working in partnership with Lewisham Council and Phoenix Community Housing. They have been designed and manufactured by The Great Outdoor Gym Company (TGO).  The gyms feature safe and inclusive equipment.

The gyms are located at Durham Hill Park, Forster Memorial Park, Mountsfield Park and Shroffold Green.

Sevenfields PCN said: “Local residents will be invited to increase their physical activity and boost their wellbeing. We also hope that because the gyms are based locally that residents will walk to the parks and use the equipment.

“There are cardio and strength activities for beginners through to exercise pros – and most importantly, in the current climate, it’s all free to use.”
