Fairfield mayor Frank Carbone said the health and wellbeing of residents is one of the "most important challenges" with high obesity levels in the community.

It's why he is encouraging residents to take advantage of council's investment in upgraded outdoor fitness equipment at Terone Park.

Cycling, climbing and cross training machines are some of the activities available for free at anytime. A recently installed water station is also on hand to keep users hydrated.

"Council is progressively rolling out new and upgraded outdoor fitness equipment across the city so every resident has the opportunity to be fit and healthy," Mr Carbone said.

"Residents of all ages can use the equipment as individuals or with family and friends.

"I encourage Bossley Park families to come and use the fitness equipment and get active and healthy together."

The upgrade at Bossley Park is part of council's $115,000 commitment to ensure residents have an opportunity to use contemporary outdoor fitness equipment for free.

  • Outdoor fitness equipment is free to use at any time. Council also hosts Gyms in Parks throughout the year, which provides free six-week exercise programs through qualified instructors. Details: 9725 0222.
