The Lough will be getting a brand new outdoor gym

A work-out with a view!

Cork city’s beloved Lough will be getting a brand new outdoor gym soon.

The gym was originally meant to be installed back in 2020 but unfortunately had to be put on hold as obstacles got in the way due to the pandemic, along with delays in filing the council post.

This new all-weather gym will feature a range of varying exercise machines installed alongside the existing playground park. These outdoor pieces will mimic those found inside a traditional gym and have been adapted to permanent outdoor use, meaning they will be sturdy and durable for any kind of weather.

Speaking about the new addition, Councillor Mick Finn mentions:

“Anything that enhances the fantastic facility we have at the Lough is great. I have also asked that better lighting be considered along a stretch of the walkway.”

The new outdoor gym at the Lough is due to be installed between the end of 2022 and the beginning of 2023.
