A new year is a great time to re-evaluate life goals as a family, and improving health and fitness will be at the top of the list.
That’s why the Brisbane City Council is encouraging families to kick-start 2017 with Brisbane’s Active & Healthy program, which offers activities for all ages and fitness levels at hundreds of local parks and other venues across Brisbane.
Low cost exercise for Brisbane families
With the New Year in full swing, Brisbane families can begin to make use of Council’s free or low-cost activities to help improve their health, fitness and well-being.
Council’s Active & Healthy Program builds an active and healthy city and proves that leading a healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to be costly.
Brisbane families can also complement their activities with outdoor workouts at 110 parks in Brisbane with fitness equipment. Check out our Brisbane park map and detailed park reviews to determine your closest park with exercise equipment.
