Mt Pleasant Reserve Seniors Park, Mount Pleasant VIC

The City of Ballarat has partnered with the National Ageing Research Institute (NARI) to install this innovative site in Ballarat.  Situated at Mt Pleasant Reserve, the Seniors Exercise Park allows older adults to engage in physical programs as they also enjoy social interaction with others and is an important part of Council’s vision to become an Age Friendly community.

The use of Lappset’s Classic 90 low impact workout circuit in the ENJOY program by NARI assists in evaluating the effects of sustained engagement in physical activity on mental health and physical outcomes for older people using the Seniors Exercise Park.

The specially designed equipment offers an exercise routine that focuses on movement, flexibility and dexterity over the traditional strength, resistance and cardio training.

The Classic 90 is also certified to playground safety standard, and acts as play equipment; allowing grandparents and grandchildren to participate and engage together!
