If you’re local to Coventry then the historic War Memorial Park is a wonderful outdoor space which is ideal for walking, running and many sporting activities.
It is the largest park in the Coventry area and opened in 1921 in tribute to soldiers who fought and died in World War I.
The park has three car parks, each located on Kenilworth Road (main entrance), Leamington Road and Coat of Arms Bridge Road. There is also a Park and Ride location just inside the main entrance from Kenilworth Road.
Outdoor Fitness at War Memorial Park
Thanks to local donations and grants, the park has a fitness trail which was put in place in 2016. The trail features 9 pieces of exercise equipment:-
- Abs workout bench
- Chin up bars
- Arm Stretch
- Horizontal ladder
- Gate Climb
- Run & leap
- Parallel Bars
- Balance Beams
The park is popular with runners and walkers alike due to well maintained paths, which are mostly flat.
If you’re local to the park then you’re fortunate that the such fitness equipment is available (for free) for park users. If you’re new to exercise and not sure how to use the fitness equipment for maximum benefit then consider hiring the services of Dean Clarke, who is a Coventry personal trainer with clients all over the area.
