The Wake Forest Parks, Recreation & Cultural Resources (PRCR) Department has been awarded a 2016 ExoFit Matching Grant in the amount of $10,000.
The grant is designed to encourage health and wellness through the installation of outdoor fitness equipment in parks and greenways.
“One of our goals in the 2015 Master Plan was to improve programs and service delivery with a focus on wellness and fitness,” said PRCR Director Ruben Wall. “Our long-term goal is to install fitness equipment in various parks and along greenways throughout the parks system.”
According to Wall, the PRCR Department will use the funds to purchase a rowing machine, leg press, double pull-up bars, push-up/dip station, and sit up bench. He says the equipment is scheduled to be delivered and installed along greenways in several town parks by the spring of 2017.
