New outdoor gym equipment worth £20,000 has been installed in Victoria Park in Worthing.

On Thursday, August 18, Cllr Clive Roberts, executive member for Environmental Worthing Borough Council, visited the newly installed equipment.

He said: “It is great to see this equipment in place and our continued investment in outdoor gym equipment being enjoyed by our residents. I have seen lots of young children all over it this afternoon, and I have been just been told that lots of our more elderly residents from the nearby Melrose Care Home regularly use this outdoor gym equipment too. Just what we wanted.

“The many benefits of encouraging greater levels of fitness, healthier lifestyle choices and regular active exercise are all very well documented and the Council continue to invest in making this equipment available as widely as possible to encourage healthy, active and fun pursuits in our parks.”
