Outdoor Exercise Facility Strategy

Research has found that exercise outdoors is considered to be refreshing, gives a sense of wellbeing and reduces tension and depression, even more so than exercise indoors.

The City of Newcastle Outdoor Exercise Facility Strategy will guide the future provision, location and design of outdoor exercise facilities across the City. The Strategy aims to ensure outdoor exercise facilities will benefit the community, contribute to activating open spaces and best use available resources.

Public exhibition period

The draft Strategy was on public exhibition from 28 May to 25 June 2018.
