Last Saturday, August 2nd, Maplewood residents were able to join the Recreation Department and other important members of the community for a special ribbon cutting ceremony at DeHart Park to inaugurate the official opening of new fitness equipment added to the ‘Trail of Wellness.’
On hand were the township committee and Mayor Victor DeLuca. Also in attendance was local fitness professional, Wayne Aikens, from Eastside Fitness. He provided a demonstration for each piece of fitness equipment and was available afterward to answer any questions about outdoor exercise and maintaining a more active/healthy lifestyle.
Since the new fitness equipment was added to the array of fitness options at DeHart Park, many residents have now been getting a ‘complete workout’ on a daily basis. It is certainly great to see residents taking advantage of all the amenities DeHart Park has to offer. Residents of all ages are using the equipment daily and at various times of the day. Ultimately, living a more active lifestyle, while enjoying the beautiful outdoors, makes for a great and inspirational day.
