AN OUTDOOR FITNESS CENTER
Dedication of outdoor facility at Sycamore Grove Park
Los Angeles - The Department of Recreation and Parks dedicated a unique outdoor fitness center at Sycamore Grove Park on Monday, June 11, 2007. The exercise facility is a joint venture between the Department and Greenfields Sports Park, a company based in Israel with offices in Los Angeles.
The $25,000 fitness center has 13 pieces of equipment designed for strength training and is free to use; the Department obtained eight of the pieces, while Greenfields donated the other five. A unique feature of the equipment is that it uses a person's body weight as resistance and thus can accommodate anyone who wants to work out; its durability also includes being able to withstand exposure to a variety of weather conditions.
Sycamore Grove Park is located at 4702 N. Figueroa Street in the Mount Washington area.
