Join NSW’s Top Councils creating Healthier Communities

Build community engagement, health and fitness opportunities for residents of all ages and abilities

We know your residents are expecting more; more green spaces, more playgrounds, more community hubs and environments where they can gather with friends, family and neighbours.  One way you can do this, effectively and quickly, is by creating an outdoor fitness park or circuit.

Requiring only a small amount of space, minimal maintenance and reduced softfall requirements (depending on your equipment choice), creating a new fitness park is an effective way to deliver what your residents want quickly, while also creating a happier, healthier community.


Playscape Creations & Norwell

With more than 20 years’ experience in adventure, outdoor fitness and aquatic play experiences, we have helped Councils around Australia create award-winning destinations and outdoor fitness parks that deliver huge returns on their community’s health and wellbeing.

To do that, we have partnered with Norwell, a Danish company that has designed their equipment to promote natural movement patterns and engage multiple muscle groups simultaneously to deliver an effective functional fitness workout.

Every outdoor fitness station is equipped with a QR code linking through to a smartphone app with usage guides, videos and training programmes to get the most out of your workout.

Placing outdoor fitness trails within community spaces overcomes any socio-economic barriers people have to entry; no membership is required and people can train at a time that suits their schedule, bringing along children, friends and family members as needed.  These outdoor fitness spaces then become an intergenerational meeting point – connecting and motivating people and supporting a healthier, more active community.

Norwell Cross is suitable for Senior users

Select outdoor fitness nstations have been specially designed for Seniors or wheelchair access, making them a welcome addition to intergenerational outdoor spaces or within retirement living and aged care facilities.

Suitable for all environments, including extreme foreshore locations, this quality stainless steel equipment is certified to AS16630:2021, which adopts the European standard EN16630:2015, and ISO 9002.

The Top 6 Benefits of Outdoor Training

In the world of health research, exercise is one of the few things that all of the experts agree on.  Regular physical activity improves heart health, reduces your risk of cancer, keeps your bones healthy and improves your mental health.

But what about where you exercise?

There is growing research to suggest that exercising outdoors and in nature combines two health-enhancing activities – moving your body and getting outdoors – to deliver exceptional results: enhancing your mood, saving you money and time and giving your workouts new social interaction.


The Benefits of Functional Fitness and Body Weight Resistance Training

Functional fitness is a type of exercise that focuses on improving the body’s ability to perform everyday activities and movements with greater ease and efficiency. This type of training involves using exercises that mimic or enhance movements used in daily life, such as squatting, lifting, pushing, pulling, and rotating.

Body weight resistance training is a type of exercise that uses the weight of your own body to build strength, endurance, and flexibility.

Combination Units

An outdoor fitness circuit doesn’t have to take up a huge footprint to be effective.  Specifically designed to accommodate multiple users on the same fitness station, Norwell’s Combination Units take social training to the next level.  Using body weight resistance and no-impact movement, there is a Combination Unit (or two!) to suit every site and every community.

Through controlled movement, a user set pace and body weight resistance, these Combination Units combine upper body, core and leg strength building exercises within a single piece of equipment, allowing whole-of-body training in a socially inclusive environment. 

With so many fitness options in one station, a single Combination unit could provide the training system your community needs.
