In 2008 – 2009, Scarborough Rotary – in collaboration with the City of Stirling – installed 8 pieces of cross-training gym / fitness equipment in four locations around Jackadder Lake in Woodlands.

The Club paid for the equipment – a cost of $ 16,500 – and the City of Stirling arranged for the installation in suitable locations along with the necessary matting that was needed.

The idea was the brainchild of a Scarborough Rotary past President, Di Godson, who handled the negotiations and the installation on behalf of the Club. We simply wanted to enable local residents to be able to enjoy walking or jogging around the lake whilst having the opportunity to do some cross / fitness training at the same time.

The equipment is used by all age groups – one local resident said – “this is great – we use it every day – it saves us the cost of joining a gym!”

This is another example of Scarborough Rotary helping the local community, using money raised in another Scarborough community project – the weekly Swap-mart at the Karrinyup Shopping Centre.
