ALMONDBURY Lib Dem councillor Linda Wilkinson has announced that the Fernside Park Trim Trail is now open for business.
Kirklees Council has installed a one-kilometre activity trail around the edge of the park.
It incorporates a running track with seven pieces of equipment distributed along it such as chin up bars, sit up areas and parallel bars.
The idea is to get the community active, and it complements the Multi Use Games Area recently opened in another part of the park.
Linda said: “Last summer’s Olympics encouraged people who haven’t previously been active to take more exercise and enjoy the health and social benefits of getting fit.
“I’m therefore delighted that residents now have another facility to help them do so.
“The last piece of equipment will be installed shortly and I’m sure it will be valued – and hopefully used – by the whole community.
“We’re lucky to have a green space like Fernside Park in the village and it’s important that we make the most of it,” she said.
