Rotary Outdoor Fitness Park officially opened

The Rotary Fitness Park at Twin Rivers/Millennium Park was officially opened on Wednesday with a ribbon cutting from Castlegar mayor Lawrence Chernoff. At the event were several dignitaries from the city as well as several Rotarians including AM president Brenda Balahura and PM president Lorraine Hartson, who were both among those who gave speeches.

"The feedback about the equipment has been very positive," said co-project manager Fred Hughes. "At the Sculpturewalk Gala, several people came over and told me they use it at lunch and do the exercises. So we've been getting good feedback."

The gym, which features 12 pieces of equipment and can accommodate 20 people at the same time, is open year-round.
