The Blacktown councillor is urging people to make more use of “wellness parks” with walking tracks and outdoor fitness stations.
He is often seen along the track at RAAF Memorial Park in Mount Druitt.
“We all lead busy lives but we need to make use of the wellness parks we have,” Cr Lowles said.
“Not every park should be a football field.
“We need places like RAAF Memorial Park, particularly in areas like Mount Druitt there is more and more high density housing.
“People respect these parks because they’re a great place to be on a nice day.”
Outdoor fitness equipment at St Clair’s Denver Road Reserve has been well used by the community since it was installed by Penrith Council last year.
Blacktown Council has a lift-out guide of walking tracks while 19 parks across the LGA have outdoor fitness equipment installed.
They include Rooty Hill Central Park, William Mason Reserve and RAAF Memorial Park in Mount Druitt, Whalan and Tregear reserves.
A council spokeswoman said it continues to plan for a wide range of recreation services.
