To provide opportunities for fitness, social inclusion and good health, the park is adding 10 to 12 fitness stations with instructional signs, as well as a paved walking path.
The park was one of 129 award recipients for projects around the nation that can be completed in just a few months. They are designed to improve the quality of life for people of all ages.
