by Amanda Taylor on 8 September, 2013

trim trailCambridge City Council has formally agreed to spend £30,000 of developer contributions on a new trim trail and outdoor gym equipment for Nightingale Avenue Recreation Ground.  The design will be discussed at the forthcoming South Area meeting on 6th September, to be held at Homerton College (Alison Shrubsole room).

There has been a public consultation this year on designs from four different suppliers; the one chosen is HAGS SMP, a global play equipment manufacturer whose motto is ‘inspiring all generations’. There will be outdoor fitness equipment including a ski stepper, leg stretch and parallel rails, made of steel but coloured green and grey to blend in with the park environment; and wooden trim trail items such as balance beams, hurdles and chin-up bars.
