Clarksville, TN – Installation of the new outdoor fitness gym at Liberty Park is nearly complete and is expected to open to the public this Saturday, October 12th, 2013.
A ribbon cutting ceremony at Liberty Park has been scheduled for Friday, October 25th, 2013 at 10:00am.
The outdoor fitness gym consists of eight pieces of equipment that includes an elliptical cross trainer, leg press, multi bars, pull-up & dip, rowing machine, airwalker plus, sit-up board, and a warm-up station.
As part of a yearlong Challenge Based Learning program at Clarksville Academy, students were challenged with ways in which to improve their community.
Team Galanz, made up of Dheeraj Daswani, John Anderson, Hunter Galbraith, and Carter Lawless had the idea of installing outdoor weight training equipment at the new Liberty Park, as a sustainable way to make the community a healthier place.
The students then received a grant from the Clarksville-Montgomery County Community Health Foundation in May of this year. With a check totaling $23,573.96, Team Galanz, was able to make their project a reality.
