New outdoor fitness equipment has been installed at North Sheen Recreation Ground, thanks to the local friends group and Richmond Council.
The Friends of North Sheen Recreation Ground, with the support of Richmond Council, secured funding from the London Marathon Charitable Trust to install a number of pieces of fitness kit including a skier, leg press, chest press, combi-benches, body twist, chin-up bars, and static cycle machine and cross rider.
A new grass matting safety surface has been put in place, with a new fence and access gates to be installed shortly. This is being funded by Richmond Council.
Richmond Council ran a consultation on the idea in October 2016 and there was a very positive response from the local community. The facility will be free for all to use and the Friends Group hope it will be enjoyed all year round. A number of free introductory sessions are being arranged (details will be available in the Pavilion Café).
