New Delhi, Aug 21 IANS | 2 months ago

People living in south Delhi colonies will now be able to access "open gyms" in their neighbourhood parks maintained by civic bodies.


The South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) Thursday passed a resolution in its standing committee meeting to establish "Open Gyms" in every ward as a pilot project.

The SDMC took the cue from the "Go Green, Open Gym" project of the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) in parks such as Lodhi Garden and Nehru Park.

The NDMC is running such gyms in 30 parks. These gyms are built over an area of 1,000 square metres in an open space. With 12 apparatus, the cost of the gyms is Rs.6 lakh.

"The most pleasant thing is that there is no need of any roof or room and even electricity," Radhey Shyam Sharma, a south Delhi councillor, said at the meeting.
