Walk around this leafy green park to get fit
Why should kids have all the fun? Fremont Park is a large space right opposite the Elizabeth Shopping Mall on Main North Road. There are two playground areas for children, but did you know it is also a great place for adults to go and get active.

A feature of the Be Active Trail is the adult's gym equipment, where you can stop for a while and stretch those muscles and have a mini workout after you have warmed up on your walk. This gym equipment is right next to one of the children's playgrounds so you can get active while your kids play.

The Be Active Trail is an initiative of the City of Playford, who have made a sealed walking trail within the park. As you walk or cycle along, you pass through some different vistas of the area. On the path, you can see how far you have walked. The route is only short, covering an easy two kilometres if you do the whole loop, so that is achievable for anyone.

Fremont Park has two toilet blocks, barbeques areas and shelters and plenty of parking. If you have no car, it is an easy walk from the Elizabeth Station, which is on the other side of the mall. After your work out, you can visit the nearby library or shops. Car park entry is on Yorketown Road or Ilford Rd. Fremont Park is set for a major redevelopment at the end of 2018 with a budget of $6 million.
