Frederick to Dedicate Fitness Station Loop at Centennial Park

Outdoor Pullup Dip Combo

The Town of Frederick will dedicate their new fitness station loop in Centennial Park (630 8th St.) Thursday May 17th at 5 p.m. This new loop contains five fitness stations that were funded in part by a LiveWell Colorado HEAL Cities & Towns Grant matched by the Town of Frederick, and an additional matching sponsorship by the Carbon Valley Parks and Recreation District (CVPRD). Attendees are encouraged to wear workout gear to give the stations a try as part of the dedication. 

Frederick has been part of LiveWell Colorado’s HEAL Cities & Towns Campaign since 2013, and has a HEAL Committee that is committed to what HEAL stands for: Healthy Eating and Active Living. As part of the HEAL Cities & Towns Campaign, the Town of Frederick has committed to adopting policy options promoted by LiveWell Colorado to improve communities’ access to options that will help them stay active and have access to healthy food. 

The five stations include a torso bench, a knee raise, row and dip combo machine, a double lower back trainer, a compound push up machine and a pull up dip combo machine. These stations are open to public use during park hours and will create access to fitness and recreation for all demographics in the area. The master plan process for Centennial Park, started in 2013 and completed in 2014, identified the desire for fitness stations. The addition of these fitness stations increases usability of a currently under-utilized area of the park.
