The Kenora Lions Club celebrated the grand opening of the new Outdoor Fitness Park in Kenora. Joan Brinkhurst came up with the idea.
"I've seen these parks in various cities out west, and I thought Kenora should have one," she explained
Brinkhurst said it worked out well, when they approached the city.
"When we apprached the city, they said on their plan they had actually set aside an area for a fitness park," she said.
The project was taken on as the Lion Club's centennial project, and has been three years in the making.
She added it's a great feeling to see the project come together.
"It's wonderful. It's been three years we've been working on this and trying to raise money, which isn't always the easiest. But it's been wonderful," she said.
The fitness area is located on Rabbit Lake, next to Garrow Park.
