New Outdoor Gym Opens in Celbridge
15 November 2023: Kildare County Council has opened a new public outdoor exercise area in Celbridge.
Located at Celbridge Abbey Car Park, the gym features a combination of outdoor exercise equipment and calisthenics which allows for free exercise using your own body weight. The range of equipment includes, rower, cross trainer, leg press, dip bars and exercise bars which facilitates a range of exercise for all ages and abilities.
The new outdoor gym in Celbridge not only provides free access to regular physical activity, which is important for physical health. It is hoped that other social integration, accessibility, and many other benefits will be felt from this important community space.
The project cost €50k and was funded by Local Property Tax provided by local Councillors and the Community Recognition Fund. The project also marks the first step in the provision of outdoor facilities for teenagers in Celbridge. Following consultations carried out over the last 18 months, it is planned to deliver more outdoor facilities in the near future.
