Eco-friendly, outdoor, free gym in Millbank Gardens

It's great to see equipment that's free and accessible to everyone, whilst enjoying the park.

It ensures that Westminster City Council residents have the opportunity to fulfil the recommended guidelines for physical activity and maintain mental health.

Plus it's eco-friendly, offering a chance for social interaction.
