Over the last 12 months the Council has received a number of enquiries relating to the creation of a dedicated outdoor gym within London Fields. Currently, users are exercising on outdated apparatus within the park’s southern play area. The Council has identified an area at the southern end of the park as a possible location for the new equipment which would be comprised of fixed exercise equipment such as parallel and pull up bars (see map below). The proposals also include the removal of the outdated gym equipment. 


Why We Are Consulting

As London Fields is Common Land, consent is required from the Planning Inspectorate before making changes, such as installing new equipment and changing park layouts.
Hackney Council would like you to have your say on the proposals before submitting an application for Common Land consent to the Planning Inspectorate.
