TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) -
Tuscaloosa residents can now take a walk in the park and work out on new outdoor fitness equipment recently installed at Monnish Park.
The park is the first one in Tuscaloosa to offer outdoor exercise equipment including push up station, a horizontal chin-up, bend dip, sit-up bench and a rowing machine. Some of the exercise stations will include signage displaying the exercise name, how it is performed and which muscles are worked.
“We’ve received numerous requests for outdoor exercise equipment in our parks. Working out in the outdoors can be exhilarating,” Gary Minor, executive director of the Tuscaloosa County Park and Recreation Authority, said in a release.
“The equipment can be used by people in all stages of physical fitness. We are excited that the City is making it available in Monnish Park which is located within the City Walk,” Minor added.
Monnish Park is at the intersection of Hackberry Lane and 15th Street.
