Beaudesert Rotary Club president Mark McCabe and The Outdoor Gym Company managing director Paul Hemmings looked at locations on Thursday to install outdoor exercise equipment in Jubilee Park.JUBILEE Park at Beaudesert is set to provide pathways to a healthier community with plans for the installation of exercise equipment in the park early next year.
Beaudesert Rotary Club president Mark McCabe announced the concept of the outdoor gym at the group’s changeover meeting in July and plans are already taking formation.
Eventually he hopes to have 15 stations in four pieces of equipment.
Mr McCabe said he hoped to roll out the two pieces of equipment, including one that is wheelchair accessible, during the first stage.
In preparation for the project, Mr McCabe recently looked at possible locations in the park with The Great Outdoor Gym Company managing director Paul Hemmings, who will provide the equipment.
“I would like to raise $20,000 for the first stage,” Mr McCabe said.
“I think we will be looking at January next year (to install the first piece of equipment).
Mr McCabe said the first stage would be a multi gym with four exercise options, shoulder press, lat pull down, cross trainer and leg press.
Each stage will be rolled out as the Rotary Club raises enough money, with the total cost of the project estimated to be about $60,000.
“I know the president coming in July next year will continue the purchase of this equipment,” Mr McCabe said.
The equipment will be suitable for people young and old and of varying fitness levels.
To raise money for the project the club is selling tickets for an art union, which they will draw in December, they have made several grant applications and they will have a stall at the Beaudesert Show on September 5 and 6.
