The combined area is known as the Watertower Fitness Centre (WFC) and accessible by using  the existing building security key.


Do’s and Don’ts

Some of these are covered by the list of conditions of entry/exit to the gym below.  However, as a number of people have put considerable effort into getting this up and running, it’s particularly important to note the following points in the spirit of maintaining and contributing to the harmony:


  • Adhere to the opening times:

    • 6am to 9pm Monday to Friday and

    • 9am to 9pm Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays

  • The Watertower gym is STRICTLY FOR RESIDENT USE ONLY and is not to be used by friends, relatives or guests visiting or staying with you.

  • Travel quietly when accessing the WFC as 4 units have bedrooms/studies that back onto the walkway. So please be respectful by walking to and from the WFC quietly.

  • Keep the external walkway door (to the library) closed when using the gym.

  • Carefully allow the soft return of the gym weight stack after each repetition on the weights machine so that the noise will not disturb residents in the adjoining apartment.

  • Wear headphones if you wish to listen to music.

  • Keep conversations quiet as the noise will travel.
