Outdoor gym in Hackney Downs
Hi all. I’ve emailed my local MPs on numerous occasions about an outdoor gym being created in Hackney Downs. They’re something I first saw and experienced in Sydney, and to my eyes it seems a perfect opportunity to bring something a little more to Hackney Downs by creating on there. All it takes (theoretically) is a small area of what is a huge space, put in the right sort of equipment and watch people come. Free resistance and workout machines which can, in terms of ‘ROI’, bring health benefits to many for a one-off cost (bar the off bit of maintenance and/or cleaning). Unfortunately I haven’t got very far in terms of response on this – but wanted to put it out there and see what people thought. Would you like to see more of this sort of thing in hackney? I’ve seen a few in other London boroughs on my travels… I think they’re a cracking idea.
