COUNCILS are cracking down on personal trainers using parks after complaints about early morning boot camps. Unley Council will soon start slugging trainers annual fees of up to $1000 to book local parks for fitness sessions, in a bid to control the growing fad and prevent time clashes between big groups at popular parks.
The proposed permit system - out for consultation this month - will limit groups to 20 people and ban fitness sessions before 6.30am and after 8pm.
It will also ban boxing, martial arts, shouting and running in a pack, and includes a refundable bond to cover damage to public equipment such as tables and benches.

So what about the asians at my local park doing TaiChi???? BANNED:p

The council only hate it as a lot of people have moved out of community halls and are now using parks due to the high fees charged for community halls:cool:

How is that possible, ThiChi is about as peacefull and quiet as it gets.

So they should be charged. We as tax/rate payers pay for the upkeep of parks etc, if you want to use it for a money making business you should be charged, however if you are using it for a picnic or non-money making activities it should be free.
