Outdoor gymnastics/fitness equipment
Outdoor gymnastics/fitness equipment would benefit the entire community by promoting health and fitness in and around the downtown Iowa City area. Equipment that would resist heavy usage and the elements is essential. My idea is to use materials and design similar to the equipment that resides near Santa Monica Pier in Santa Monica, CA. Galvanized pull-up bars, box jumps/vault boxes, rings on chains, climbing ropes, parallel bars, etc. Potential locations included but are not limited to City Park, the space near the skateboard park and University of Iowa boat house, and the west side of the river near the sidewalk that passes Hancher auditorium.If you do a search for outdoor fitness equipment, you'll be hard-pressed to find anything other than images of muscle beach and kids playground equipment. I believe there is a vacuum for playground equipment for adults. Practical application of health and fitness for all levels. Come once and have fun. Come every morning and get ripped. Come alone. Invite friends and make up goals. It's whatever. It's up to you, and it's free.
