Community Gym Survey now open

Published on Monday, 11 April 2022 at 9:00:00 AM

The Shire of Boddington is undertaking community consultation to determine the level of support in the community for the Shire to establish and operate a Community Gym to meet existing needs and leverage emerging opportunities. Since the Boddington Recreation Centre opened in 2017, feedback from the community expressed aspiration for a gym facility to be incorporated as part of the Recreation Precinct, so this consultation will also clarify the community’s needs and expectations that may inform the future operational requirements of the space.

A Community Gym is a health and wellbeing initiative whereby a regional Local Government owns and operates a space for residents to exercise unsupervised with commercial grade equipment to allow for both cardio and strength/weights training. At present the closest gym facilities are located in Armadale (95km), Pinjarra (75km) and Narrogin (82km) which aren’t considered accessible for the community.

Further information and a link to the survey is available from Community Gym Project page. Alternatively, the survey can be completed in hardcopy format by visiting the Shire of Boddington Administration. The consultation period is open from Monday, 11 April March – Wednesday, 30 April.
