Kids are not the only ones who can have fun and exercise at Largo Central Park. A new Fitness Zone for adults opens Oct. 23 at 10:30 a.m. The community is invited to the opening ceremony.
The Fitness Zone offers 21 workout stations including an elliptical cross trainer, sit-up benches, and vertical press machines. The shaded adult exercise area is sandwiched between the Largo Cultural Center and the children's playground.
It gets people active and working out. It gives parents the option to keep active while they watch their kids, Parks Superintendent Greg Brown said.
The equipment was paid for with a $52,000 grant through the Pinellas County Health Department. The grant will also fund a second fitness zone and signs for a walking trail, Brown said.
The second exercise area will be at the new Highland Recreation Complex once its complete next spring.
The signs will be for the proposed new Largo Green Trail. The signs, which will go up in a few months, will guide walkers between Eagle Lake and the Pinellas Trail, Brown said.
