Status: de facto

A  fitness station, outdoor gym, Street Workout, Calisthenics Park or trim trail is an outdoor facility, a single or a collection of exercise equipment. 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=fitness
  • 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_station=* the type of fitness equipment at the station

Fitness equipment

Normally the tag fitness_station=* is added to describe the type of fitness equipment at the station. Often there is one kind of equipment at the station.

Alternatively, if a fitness station has more than one type of equipment, some mappers add tags in the format fitness_station:<equipment_type>=yes to the leisure=fitness_station feature. Rarely a semi-colon value separator is used when there is more than one kind of equipment at the fitness station, with fitness_station=<equipment1>;<equipment2>;etc.

A few mappers instead use fitness_station=* alone to map individual exercise equipment within a fitness station, as separate nodes inside a fitness station area.
