Outdoor fitness equipment is increasingly becoming more popular in parks and recreational settings. This equipment has typically moving components that need to be designed with safety and durability in mind. The combined efforts of sub committees F08.30 and F15.29 will be used to create this document that will be valuable to designers and operators of facilities that install these products.
