About the program

Initiated by Bundaberg Regional Council in 2012, the award-winning free parks and pools program was commenced with the help of State Government funding.

The program continues to be developed and refined under Council's 'Healthy and Active' charter to provide an inclusive mix of activities across our region's parks, pools and open spaces.

Fitness class types are dependant on fitness provider registrations.
