A fitness station, outdoor gym, Street Workout, Calisthenics Park or trim trail is an outdoor facility, a single or a collection of exercise equiptment. This is typically operated by a local government and free to use for everyone. Often along a fitness route or inside a park.

How to map

Place a node node at the centre of the facility or draw an area area around the surface, and tag it leisure=fitness_station on it.

If the fitness station is part of a fitness route, make them a member of a route=fitness_trail relation.

Useful combinations

  • sport=exercise or sport=fitness recommended (both are used about equally)
  • name=* a name for the fitness station
  • ref=* a reference number of the fitness station
  • description=* additional description
  • opening_hours=* Sometimes, the fitness station might not be open 24/7
  • operator=* eg, the name of the local council which operates the fitness station

Fitness equipment

Similar to playground equipment, individual exercise equipment within a fitness station should be mapped individually as separate nodes inside the fitness station area using fitness_station=* for the equipment type.

Alternatively it is acceptable to describe the available equipment on the leisure=fitness_station object with prefix-tags in the format fitness_station:<equipment_type>=yes.
