Alva Outdoor Gym, Official Opening, Saturday 14 April 2018

Alva now has an Outdoor Gym in the town’s Cochrane Park where you will have a beautiful view of the Ochil Hills and can listen to birds singing while using the new equipment including an Air Walker, Ski Stepper, Rower, Twister, Sit Up Bench and The Pendulum which are all fixed on rubber grass matting.

Sandra Rees, Alva Community Council introduced Alva’s very own Kenny Cook to the crowd of approx. 50 people who turned up for the official opening of the facility.  After saying a few words about the benefits of physical exercise and the outdoor gym in particular, Kenny ‘cut the ribbon’ at the ceremony.  Kenny who is now the Active Community Officer, Clackmannanshire Council, is a well known athlete who won the Hill Race at Alva Games in 1986, completing the Senior race in 19 minutes 30 seconds having been placed 4th, 3rd and 2nd in previous years and prior to that he won the Junior Hill Race in 1981 and 1982.
