Cessnock City Council is pleased to officially open three new fitness stations installed at Chinaman’s Hollow, Weston. Council was successful in securing $164,123 under the NSW Government’s Stronger Countries Community Grant to install the stations.
Cessnock City Mayor Jay Suvaal said it was fantastic to be able to deliver this infrastructure to the community after a streamlined eight-week construction period.
“Getting outdoors and moving is vital, not only for the physical benefits but for our mental wellbeing,” Clr Suvaal said.
“The fitness stations feature multi-purpose gym style equipment that is free to use and caters to all levels of fitness and ability.
“The project also includes new pathways connecting the three fitness installations with seating and shelters to create a fully integrated fitness loop.
“I look forward to seeing the community take advantage of these wonderful new facilities over the years to come, as part of a revitalised Maybury Peace Park/Chinaman’s Hollow precinct.”
The outdoor fitness stations form part of the Maybury Peace Park/Chinaman’s Hollow masterplan.
This project received funding through the NSW Government’s Stronger Countries Community Grant Round 5.
