Recreation parks could be home to outdoor gym idea
AN outdoor gym could be built in Henley.
Town councillors want to set up exercise equipment for adults at one of the town’s recreation grounds.
They have no specific plans yet but have formed a working group to research and devise a detailed proposal. The council has set aside up to £10,000 in its budget for 2014/15 to cover the cost of building it.
If the scheme went ahead it would be likely to go on one of the green spaces which the authority owns. This could include Mill and Marsh Meadows, Makins recreation ground or the town green at Gillotts Field, both off Greys Road, or Freeman’s Meadow off Fair Mile.
The council’s recreation and amenities committee discussed the idea on Tuesday night. Cllr Joan Bland said: “This is really worth looking into. We look after our children but we need to look after our adults as well.
