Presentation 1: Designing and Selecting Outdoor Exercise Solutions for People of all Ages

Children and the youth have different needs and expectations for physically active outdoor spaces and the same applies to working age adults and our more senior citizens. Demographics are changing and so are our children’s waistlines; but are our design considerations? Learn about the wide variety of options available today for public spaces that promote physical activity.

Key learning outcomes:

  • to describe the main differences in design of traditional adults’ exercise equipment and that of seniors’

  • to describe considerations for maximisation of exercise park patronage

  • to explain how to cater for a wide range of demographics

Presenter: Harri Makela, Managing Director - Lappset Australia
