Residents know, Castle Rock is a healthy community and makes active living a priority. So, to meet the needs of the growing community, the Town is partnering with the Castle Rock Parks and Trails Foundation to bring an outdoor FitGround course to Philip S. Miller Park.
The future course will be located just east of the synthetic-turf athletic field, across the street / parking lot of the Challenge Hill. The course will provide body-weight and free-form tools for performing resistance exercises designed to build strength, balance, mobility, agility and muscular endurance.
When combined with the trails and Challenge Hill, users can use the FitGround course to get a full-body workout on their own or in fun group classes. Amenities include:
There is also a large fitness station connected by overhead bars and additional parallel bars, battle ropes, push up bars and plyometric steps.
While construction of the FitGround is substantially complete, the foundation is still seeking sponsors for this new amenity. The synthetic turf and final components are scheduled to be installed the first week of October.
The estimated equipment cost is $65,000. The foundation's goal is to raise at least 50 percent of the funds needed for the equipment installation.
Projects like the FitGround course can only be made possible with your support. Donate online today at GetOutdoorsCastleRock.org/FitGround. All donations to the Parks and Trails Foundation are tax deductible.
