Hounslow Heath - Proposed Outdoor Gym

Closed 25 Feb 2022

Opened 28 Jan 2022

Overview

As part of the Council’s continued commitment to improve our parks and open spaces, the Council’s Parks Team are proposing to install a new outdoor gym at Hounslow Heath. The Council propose that the equipment installed should be a mix of items that are suitable for both those that have mobility difficulties, and other uses.

The proposed location of the gym is shown on the map above with a line where the extension of the footpath will run to make the gym accessible. The path will be approximately 1.5m wide. 

It is proposed that the equipment will include a mixture of static and moving items. These items have not yet been finalised and so it is encouraged that participants of the consultation leave any suggestions they may have in the comments box for consideration. Examples of the equipment we are looking to install can be found here.

  • Balance Board
  • Hip Swing Combo
  • Triple Twister
  • Cross-rider Combo
  • Air Walker
  • Step and Calf
  • Lat Pull and Chest Press Combo

The purpose of this consultation is to seek if there is public support to create a new outdoor fitness space in Hounslow Heath.
