Green Gyms are exercise stations usually installed in a green environment, like a park.
The variety of green gyms we have available in Cairns is quite vast. Cairns is becoming a healthy and more active city, so to meet the needs of the community the green gyms have been popping up all over the suburbs, not just along the Cairns Esplanade.
The green gyms will be visible in your area from the road, so you will see them as you drive around your streets. This clear line of sight will make you feel safe when using them.
Please see the instruction panels on how to use each piece of equipment to avoid injury. Happy exercising!
