We bring the best of the gym outdoors
Powered by people and the elements, this outdoor fitness circuit is your free pass to staying active and healthy in the great outdoors.

A sustainably created surface for our outdoor fitness circuit stations
Central Park's outdoor fitness circuit station surfaces are made from 100% recycled materials–recycled steel and rubber tires have been transformed into an environmentally-friendly, rubberized surface for our outdoor fitness circuit stations.
The poured-in-place rubber is made from recycled tires that have been ground into granules to create a finished surface that's maintenance-free. A total of 7 tons of rubber went into this special outdoor flooring for the circuit stations–and 84% of that came from scrap tires recycled in BC.
The $15,000 recycled tire rubberized surface was made possible by the generous contributions of Tire Stewardship BC (TSBC) and Kal Tire.
