The City of Wanneroo is encouraging residents young and old to capitalise on its free sport and leisure facilities.
Backed by the City’s Strategic Community Plan centred on implementing strategies that promote health and social wellbeing, the City of Wanneroo is encouraging residents young and old to capitalise on its free sport and leisure facilities.
From park play equipment and outdoor fitness installations, to BMX tracks and skate parks, Mayor Tracey Roberts said sport and leisure was a key facet of the City’s ongoing commitment to the health and wellbeing of its residents.
“The City of Wanneroo is committed to providing facilities that enable residents to lead a healthy and active lifestyle,” Mayor Roberts said.
“From weekly park runs to walking groups and dance classes, there is so much on offer locally that people can take advantage of.”
Outdoor exercise equipment can also be found in a number of parks across the City of Wanneroo, as far south as Paloma Park in Marangaroo and as far north as Booderee Park in Yanchep.
Fitness stations at Hainsworth Park in Girrawheen and Shelvock Park in Koondoola received an upgrade to include a range of exercise options at varying levels of difficulty in July of this year.
A list of parks with fitness equipment can be found on the City’s website, as well as downloadable fitness programs specific to each park.
Residents keen on practicing their backhand can access 10 tennis court locations dotted throughout the City, which are free of charge, don’t require a reservation for one-off sessions and many of which are fitted with push-button floodlights.
Mayor Roberts said new amenities such as the mixed-skills Banksia Grove Skate Park and a planned playground equipment upgrade in Elton Park further underlined the City’s continuing drive to deliver accessible and affordable sport and leisure amenities.
