Installation of Fitness Court at Fuhrman Park Commences

Work has begun on the installation of the Fitness Court to be located in the Township’s Fuhrman Park (adjacent to East Donegal Township Municipal Building). The concrete pad that will serve as the base for the Court has been installed adjacent to the existing tennis court at the eastern end of the park.  To accommodate the location, the Columbia Water Company relocated a water line, at no cost to the Township, to avoid any potential conflicts.

The Fitness Court, funded in part by grant funds, is part of a nationwide effort of the National Fitness Campaign to install and activate over 200 outdoor fitness courts in cities and schools.  The fitness court features a 32-foot-by-35-foot outdoor bodyweight circuit training system with 30 pieces of body-weight fitness elements, including seven full-body circuit training stations and a body-weight training wall.

All Fitness Courts are supported by a free to download mobile application, which offers world-class workouts and acts like a coach in your pocket, serving up fun ways to stay fit while enjoying fresh air, sunshine and a healthy workout outdoors.

Here’s a video prepared by the National Fitness Campaign that highlights the Fitness Court concept.
