Seniors fitness park unveiled near Esquimalt teen centre

Seniors and others invited to check out new fitness equipment

Esquimalt residents and others are invited to celebrate the opening of the township’s new seniors outdoor fitness park.

Fitness trainers will be on hand on Tuesday, April 17, to help people try out the new seniors-friendly all-weather equipment. The machines are designed to improve balance and co-ordination, upper- and lower-body strength, and range of motion in the shoulders.

Other seniors-oriented fitness parks in the region are at Henderson Park in Oak Bay, and in Sidney on Resthaven Drive beside the Sidney/North Saanich library.

The free public event, which will include light refreshments, happens at 535 Fraser St., beside the Esquimalt Teen Centre, starting at 11 a.m.
