    We are looking at installing fitness equipment in some our parks, and are concerned with vandalism and graffiti on these equipment. Does anybody have advise or suggestions on what might work well, and what does not work.

    Also Councillors are split on whether we should be spending money on high-tech (and more costly) exercise stations or installing the more traditional chin-up, abs and dip type equipment. any suggestions?

    kind regards

    We have several parks with Fitness Equipment, we have found that quality does make a difference. Some of the equipment installed has only lasted 5 years. We are trying to stear clear of moving equipment and use the modern fixed equipment.
