Trail to Wellness is “Shaping” Up to a Great Start!

The ShapingNJ grant will help the Maplewood Recreation Department implement our “Trail to Wellness” at DeHart Park!

The “Trail to Wellness” at Dehart Park involves community youth, adults, and senior citizens and will teach healthy eating through strategically placed signs and plaques.  It will also engage individuals in exercise by improving an already existing walking trail with new outdoor exercise equipment.  This trail will also provide a place for socialization and fun!

The brand new outdoor exercise equipment is designed for low-impact strength training to allow residents of all ages and abilities to utilize it. The pieces of equipment that are planned to be installed include Ab Crunch, Leg Lift, Assisted Row/ Push Ups, Balance Steps, Cardio Stepper, Chest Press, Back Press, Plyometrics, Pull Up Bar, Dips Bar, Squat Press, and Tai Chi Wheels! The wide variety of equipment is designed to allow residents to get a more complete workout, while enjoying some fresh air at beautiful Dehart Park.
