Anybody knows about outdoor calisthenics options in Las Palmas?
All I need is a pull up bar, flat surface for hand stands and all the rest is a bonus.
Parque Romano is good, another one is next to Playa La Cicer, close to the Auditorio Alfredo Kraus.
There are two outdoor parks with pull-up bars right at Auditorio Alfredo Kraus, one ‘in front’ visible from La Cicer and one in the back (you have to walk past the Auditorio).
Also, there is a bigger calisthenics park at Parque Romano with plenty of pullup options and even public weight machines.
For handstands / flat surface, the park behind auditorio (El Rincon) has an astroturf spot close by as well as a grassy spot under the palmtrees.
Only Parque Romano has gym equipment (adjustable weights, i.e. squat rack). Those at Auditorio, you have to use your bodyweight.
At Parque Romano they have a few machines (like chest press etc) with a couple of weights but the condition is pretty bad. It’s nice for calisthenics though.
Besides the parks near the Auditorio, there is another workout park (with a 1k running gravel track and other stuff) at Parque Romano.
There are two outdoor gyms next to the Alfred Kraus Auditorio. The one behind is better in my opinion but the bars are thicker and made of metal and more slippery. The view is unbeatable though.
As David said at Alfredo Kraus Auditorio there is an old one with wood bar and a new one with metal bar
