Abstract

Studies show that parks provide people with the opportunity to participate in physical activity and encourage social interactions. However, there are few studies on the role of outdoor gym equipment on physical activity and social interactions, despite the increasing trend of installing gym equipment in parks in Australia and overseas. This study aims to determine people's experiences of using outdoor gym equipment in relation to physical activity and social interactions.
