Adults can play at parks too

2017-04-04 06:03

Masiphumelele residents will receive a fitness boost with the installation of gym equipment at the Skina Road and Myeza Road parks.

Eddie Andrews, Mayco member (South), says the City of Cape Town plans on installing two items of outdoor gym equipment at each of the parks.

“A purchase order has been created and the items are currently being manufactured. The equipment will be installed by June,” he says.

In addition, a new fence at Skina Road park is being completed and a new hard surface is being constructed at Myeza Road park. “The play parks at present only cater for children up to the age of 14 and incorporating gym equipment creates an opportunity to encourage older users to become active and enjoy their local park. In addition it also provides parents who would normally need to watch from the sidelines as their little ones enjoy the park equipment something to look forward to as well,” Andrews says.
