The outdoor gym project

 Ever wondered where you can find a free outdoor gym near you? Now you can with this outdoor gym/jungle gym locator.

The Outdoor Gym Project is a collaborative, global list of outdoor gyms and public spaces where you can exercise.

For the purpose of this list, will be considered as an outdoor gym:
- any free public space that can be used by adults to exercise, and designed for that purpose.
- that space should include exercise stations such as outdoor pull up bars, dip bars, etc.
- that space should be currently in use by a small community of adults interested in calisthenics.

To add your local gym to the map:

- you will need to be logged in to google or google+ to edit the map.
- click on 'view The outdoor gym project in a larger map' link above.
- click on 'edit' to add your own landmark to the map.
- click on the blue placemark in the top left corner, and drag it to the location of your local outdoor gym.
- Under the heading 'title', write the location, city, and country of your gym.
- Write a short description, and when finished, click save.

If you do not have a google+ account and would like to add your local outdoor gym to the map, email me at with a postcode and  the city and country of your gym, and I will add it to the map for you.

* Please note that I cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information on this map. This outdoor gym locator is the result of a collaborative effort, and some landmarks may not have been placed correctly.


  1. I really like the whole free, public, outdoor gym concept. Exercising indoors never felt right to me anyway. I need the sounds and the smells of the outdoors I think. I have added the very first Idaho, USA location to the map! w00t.

  2. Hi guys, I am an avid follower of the bodyweight movement, and have seen great result from bodyweight training. If anyone is interested in funding a charitable cause, I would like to head a outdoor gym project across South Africa. Contact me on for more information

  3. HI! thanks for the map. I just added some points myself. But your indication on how to add a locator seems to be either outdated or wrong. To add a new location, simply click the little "add marker" button. Be sure to be under the correct layer when you do that (name of the layer is "outdoor gym")

  4. I added one for Toronto, Canada. Don't know if it worked. Let me know. Thanks.

  5. I tried to add one for Rocky Bayou State Park in Florida, hope it worked right!
