Get trim on the Murray Park trail
If you fancy a bit more than a stroll around your local park then make your way to Murray Park where eight brand new pieces of fitness equipment have been installed this week by Richmond Council.
The ‘trim trail’ has been designed to encourage visitors to get their heart rate up as they enjoy a visit to the park in Kneller Road, Twickenham and has been made possible thanks to the hard work of the Friends of Murray Park who secured funding from the Rugby World Cup Legacy Fund for the equipment. Richmond Council installed the trim trail and agreed to invest in a new permanent perimeter path to support the trail along the Whitton Dene end of Murray Park.
If you really want to be put through your paces the Council has arranged for a number of free personal training sessions to celebrate the opening. The first is on 8th April at 10am. Fitness trainers will lead demonstrations for park visitors on how to use the equipment, with sessions taking place when the weather warms up in the Spring - dates will be published over the coming weeks. All the usual trimmings can be expected from the ‘trim trail’ including a cross trainer, chin-up bar, sit-up benches, chest press and exercise bike.
