On 15 February, Hon Kyle McGinn MLC, Member for the Mining and Pastoral Region opened the Shire of Yilgarn’s new outdoor fitness centre at the Southern Cross Recreation Precinct.
The outdoor fitness centre consists of 14 different equipment items which can be used separately or as a circuit and is available for visitors and community members to use free of charge.
The Recreation Precinct was identified in collaboration with the District High School students and the school council as a way to improve options in physical activity for youth and it is also age-friendly. The Wheatbelt Development Commission’s Wheatbelt Community Chest 2017 funding of $25,000 supported the purchase and installation of the fitness equipment.
