Outdoor fitness code of conduct

The purpose of the Council Outdoor Fitness Training Code of Conduct is:

  • to eliminate negative behaviour that interferes with the amenity of local residents and other park users
  • to ensure access and use of public open space is preserved for all members of the community
  • to protect public open spaces and public domain for future community use
  • to provide the opportunity for the community to benefit from, enjoy and engage in fitness training in a variety of outdoor environments.

Where fitness training is permitted

Under the Code of Conduct, fitness training is not permitted within marked sportsfields or bushland zones (unless on footpaths), or at the Coal Loader Centre for Sustainability.
