About Hibiscus and Bays parks fitness equipment implementation in parks

​We have a strong commitment to providing opportunities for healthy, active lifestyles.

Some of our parks provide park users the opportunity to ‘work-out’ using outdoor fitness equipment. These include:

  • Aicken Reserve – Torbay
  • Orewa Reserve – Orewa Beach

A parks service assessment has identified ten parks that would be suitable for additional public outdoor fitness equipment.

They include:

  • Victor Eaves Park
  • Stanmore Bay Park
  • Silverdale War Memorial Park
  • Metro Park East
  • Murrays Bay to Gulf Harbour Recreational Reserve and coastal links
  • Browns Bay Coastal Walkway
  • Red Beach Park
  • Sherwood Reserve/Freyberg Park
  • Manly Park
  • Aicken Reserve/Waiake Beach Reserve.

We received 97 online submissions about adding additional public outdoor fitness equipment to our parks.

Key feedback themes

  • The most popular park to have outdoor fitness equipment installed at was Red Beach Park.
  • This was followed by Metro Park east and Victor Eaves Park in Ōrewa.
  • There was an even split between people wanting mechanical exercise equipment and static equipment.
  • A hub/circuit style workout area was preferred.

What happens next

We will use your feedback to further refine the plan.

Further discussion with Hibiscus and Bays Local Board is required.
