Atlantic is being considered for exercise equipment in parks |  Atlantic

ATLANTIC – Atlantic is recognized across the country as a place for park exercise equipment, said Bryant Rasmussen, director of Atlantic Park and Recreation, the Atlantic Park Board.

Rasmussen said he was contacted by officials from the National Fitness Campaign, an “organization trying to add exercise equipment to locations across the country.” He said after the meeting that officials thought Atlantic would be a good fit because they received the Healthy Hometown Designation in February this year and because people are working on the trail system in the county.

Rasmussen said officials said either a spot in Sunnyside Park or Schildberg Recreation Area would work for the equipment and it would cost to get the equipment, he said the organization offers grants. He also thought people would be willing to sponsor the equipment too.
