Cornwall Ontario – The Rotary Clubs of Cornwall and Cornwall Sunrise invite the public to attend the official ceremony for turning over the new Rotary Outdoor Gym to the City of Cornwall. The Outdoor Gym has been installed in Lamoureux Park between the splash pad and the Wood House Museum. The ceremony will take place on Thursday, September 22nd at 5:30 pm when our Mayor will cut the ribbon and receive this gift to the people of Cornwall.
Considerable planning has gone into making sure that this outdoor gym will provide a site and workout equipment to meet the needs of citizens with a wide range of abilities and ages. The use of the equipment at this facility is free to everyone and accessible at all hours; the equipment itself has been selected for durability and user friendliness. Demonstrations are planned to show the usage of the various pieces of equipment designed to enhance the fitness and wellbeing of our citizens.
Both Rotary Clubs have made substantial financial commitments to this endeavour and a number of Cornwall and area contractors and businesses have been extremely important in moving this project to reality. The site includes an area featuring stones of various sizes; these stones, which can be engraved, continue to be available to individuals and corporate sponsors who make donations to help defray the cost of making this facility a very attractive addition to Cornwall’s waterfront park.
