There are many different layouts and combinations of outdoor fitness equipment a park department can choose from depending on the park's footprint, existing amenities, and design goals. Outdoor fitness equipment will see the most success when it's clustered together and in a visible and accessible area of the park. Another effective way to enhance the success of the installation, which isn't often discussed, is to have a combination of functional, bodyweight, and resistance-based fitness stations to cater to people who enjoy a particular type of exercise.
Functional, bodyweight and resistance outdoor fitness stations come in single and multigym configurations. An outdoor gym comprised of single fitness stations requires a large footprint, and the stations are spread out. This is great for proper social distancing, and since it requires a lot of space, the installation will look impressive in your park. On the other end of the spectrum, multigym fitness stations are compact, making them an excellent option for parks of all sizes and large and small budgets.
