THE Parque del Oeste in Malaga has a new sports space for street training, also known as cross-training which features state-of-the-art equipment. Each piece of apparatus contains a QR code linked to a free app, to help users of all ages and different levels of fitness.

The Councillor for Operational Services, Teresa Porras, and the Councillor for the Carretera de Cádiz District, Luis Verde, recently opened the new facility located in the sports area of ​​the city park, adjacent to Calle Francisco de Padilla.

With this installation, there are now three outdoor sports facilities with built-in technology including the one in Huelin, on the Paseo Marítimo Antonio Banderas, at the height of the Glorieta Antonio Molina and the park located on the paseo Marítimo Pablo Ruiz Picasso. All this has meant a municipal investment of around €300,000.

The cross-training sports equipment in the facilities of the Parque del Oeste has the objective of improving the offer within the facilities in addition to promoting sports activity through new trends. This supply and installation have been carried out through the open procedure called by the Municipal Cleaning Company and Parque del Oeste. The contract was awarded to the company Juegos Kompan SA for a total of €39,776.16.
