Whitton Green Project gets its final piece

4 July 2022

The final piece of the Whitton Green Project was opened today with demonstrations on how to use the new Gym Equipment.

Lowestoft Town Council are delighted that what started as a public consultation back in 2019 on how the site could be used now sees the launch of the completed concept with the retained caged sports arena, the children’s play park and the outdoor fitness equipment.

Many thanks to the team from Kompan who came and demonstrated all the equipment and how to use the app. The app is free to download and gives you a quick demonstration on each piece of equipment, some recommended workouts, and saves your progress (so you can keep coming back and improving!)
