A new set of outdoor exercise equipment, free to the public, has opened at Cobbs Hill Park in Rochester.

The fitness court, on Norris Drive near Culver Road, is a square rubberized surface with one wall. Steps and platforms jut out of the ground. Metal bars extend from the wall.

Sean Smith, a gym owner and fitness ambassador for the new facility, said the equipment is designed to allow a person to exercise using their own body weight for resistance.
