Cabinet Member for environmental sustainability and regeneration, Councillor Andrew Judge said: “We are lucky that Merton is one of London’s greenest boroughs and we are embracing this and using our green spaces effectively. It’s great that we are investing in our parks to make them a great place for people to visit and exercise in.  Our green gyms are free, allowing you to get fit in the fresh air whilst not having to worry about gym membership. I encourage everyone to go to their local park this summer, use our outdoor gyms and play areas and keep fit and healthy.”
