Here’s a good idea for any city: outdoor gyms.  It makes the activity public, less serious and good for everyone’s health, young and old.

From sustainable cities:

Since 1998, the Chinese government has created approximately 4,000 outdoor gyms in Beijing. Available to residents and visitors alike, these facilities can be found throughout the city’s parks, streets, and other public areas. The national and municipal governments have promoted these facilities through public events such as the annual National Fitness Day and Beijing Olympic City Sports Culture Festival.
