Bouyed by the public support for free open air gymnasiums on Royals and Allithurai main roads, the city corporation has now slowly started to spread the wings, intent on making the facilities available in four other locations here. With the proposed four open gyms now adding to the existing two facilities, all four zones of the civic body will have open air gymnasiums as recreational sopts.

The Urban Local Body (ULB) launched the open air gymnasium for Rs 25 lakh on Allithurai main road near Amma Canteen as part of promoting recreational infrastructure and fitness facilities in the city in January 2018. The centre, which is equipped with seven mechanisms, can be operated without electricity.
Works are already underway for establishing an open air gymnasium each at Burma Colony in Ariyamangalam and Anna Nagar link road along Uyyakondan canal, and two at KK Nagar.
The total cost of installation for each of the open air gymnasium was calculated to be between Rs 10 lakh and Rs 25 lakh. All four proposed gymnasiums were expected to be open in April 2018, officials said. With works on gyms progressing, the ULB plans to set up science park facility in Thennur, this month. However, landscaping works are yet to be completed by the corporation.
The corporation’s move for better public health through open air gymnasiums came after it saw an increased demand for recreational activities in the city. The authorities said that four viable spots have been identified to expand the facilities. “Open air gyms are easy to maintain as it requires minimal space. Such gyms can be installed in the existing parks,” an official with Trichy Corporation said.
