Residents urged to keep fit as outdoor fitness equipment fitted at park
11:42am Saturday 21st September 2013 in News
OUTDOOR fitness equipment has been fitted into a Ferryhill park to help users keep active and fit during their visits.
Ferryhill Town Council secured the funding to pay for outdoor fitness equipment which has been fitted at the Dean Bank Park.
The funding for the project came from Premier Waste Management Landfill Communities Fund.
The scheme formed part of a major scheme to regenerate the Dean Bank Park. It is hoped to install new seating and to carry out landscaping.
A multi-use games area and new play equipment has already been fitted at the site.
A council spokesman said: ““The town council and the Friends of Dean Bank Park community group, who campaigned for this project are thrilled that their ideas have been brought to fruition.
“The project demonstrates just what can be achieved when the town council and local community work in partnership together.
“On behalf of both the town council and the Friends group I would like to say a huge thank you to Premier Waste Management who has made this project possible.”
Dean Bank Park is also one of five sites maintained by the town council to secure the prestigious Green Flag status in 2013.
