Gladstone Fitness Park

About a month ago the local council started building ‘something’ near one of our local walking tracks up town.  Speculation ran rife until the first of the machines went in, and everyone said the same thing:  “Great Idea!”

Then they said two more things: 

2.  Who will use it?  The answer, from what I’ve seen so far, quite a lot of folk actually.  And good on them.  In fact, going by the popularity of the park they may need to install more gear.

And, 3.  If it’s not locked up at night then it will be vandalised.  Well, it’s been a month now.  No graffiti, no smashed gear.  So far so good. 

 Which says a couple of things about our town; we’re fairly law abiding, and are starting to enjoy getting out and getting fit.  Or the vandals are too lazy to bother…  either way, you’ve gotta be happy with that!
