Last Chance To Comment on South Park Gym Proposal

Facility would be next to the cricket nets on east side of the park

The existing gym in Normand Park

Residents of South Fulham have a last chance this weekend to offer their views on a proposal by Hammersmith & Fulham Council to install a new outdoor gym in South Park.

The gym would sit in the currently empty space next to the cricket nets on the eastern side of the park.

The council say the gym would have a mixture of static and moving items, along with the possibility of a Swing Fitness weights box and equipment aimed at younger users.

The consultation includes some examples of the types of equipment that may be installed, but the council say they are welcoming suggestions on any they might have missed.

Residents further north in Fulham can already use a similar free outdoor gym in Normand Park.

Anyone wishing to comment on the proposals is invited to respond by the end of Monday, 13 June. The consultation can be found here.

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
