Lovely woodland is the perfect space to get fit in
NHS Lanarkshire has helped in the development of the Cuningar Loop - a Legacy 2014 project, to help build an outdoor woodland workout.
Forest Enterprise Scotland’s £5.7 million Cuningar Loop project is transforming 15 hectares of derelict land on the banks of the River Clyde into an attractive woodland park. Designed to encourage people to get active outdoors, the new woodland workout area consists of eight pieces of apparatus, including angled hurdles, balance beams, sit up log, pull up bars and log hops.
Forest Enterprise Scotland project manager for Cuningar Loop, Joneen Clarke commented: “We’re really excited to have received this donation from NHS Lanarkshire. The woodland workout area means everyone can get active for free. The area can be used by adults and children who enjoying staying fit together.
“We wanted to create a really great space where people can come along and walk around the park and enjoy the outdoors.”
The workout area is located within the Activity Zone which also features a bike skills park, bouldering park and adventure play. Cuningar Loop is hosting a Come and Try Adventure Play and Arts event in September giving visitors the chance to try the Activity Zone and experience what the park has to offer before its official opening in spring 2016.
A ‘Come and Try Adventure Play and Arts’session at Cuningar Loop, Downiebrae Road, Rutherglen, will be held on Sunday September 20 from noon – 4pm.
