OPEN DOOR: Whanganui junior rep basketball squad enjoy a workout at Cooks Gardens.

Whanganui has a magnificent sporting facility in Cooks Gardens but perhaps many people do not realise it is open for general use.

Kathy Cunningham, new chief executive of Wanganui Events Trust, which runs Cooks Gardens, said she was keen to get the message out that anyone can go along and run, walk and generally exercise there.

There is no charge for casual use but it is helpful if larger groups make contact and let the trust know they are coming.

"We now have the toilet open during the day," Ms Cunningham said.

"We want everyone to know that the community can enjoy this wonderful resource now."
