Gym equipment has been popping up in a number of outdoor spaces in Oldham over the last few months.

The council has confirmed new outdoor gym equipment will be installed in more locations across the borough, following the latest installation of the equipment at Princess Park and Granby Street Park.

Currently, gym equipment can already be found at six parks, with a further four set to get it in the future.
