On Monday, the Senior Citizens Club and city officials gathered at the Fernie Aquatic Centre for the official unveiling of the outdoor fitness equipment.
Although the equipment has been standing on the grounds for around six weeks now, locals gathered to thank local businesses and organizations for making the outdoor equipment centre possible.
Mayor Mary Giuliano was in attendance, thanking Fernie Ready Mix for their cement donation, as well as the Fernie Garden Centre for donating trees for the aquatic centre grounds.
“Thank you for making this happen, this is wonderful” Giuliano said. “This is such a great addition to Fernie.”
Senior Citizens Club President Jim Booth added, “We hope the exercise park will be well used by citizens of Fernie of all ages and also our out of town guests.”
Booth also thanked the Director of Leisure Services, Cam Mertz, and New Horizons for their contribution to the project.
