Outdoor fitness gym set for Liberty Park

Liberty Park Opens to Public (1)

Liberty Park will soon be home to a new outdoor fitness gym, thanks to a group of Clarksville Academy students and a grant they received from the Clarksville-Montgomery County Community Health Foundation in May of this year.

As part of a yearlong Challenge Based Learning program at Clarksville Academy, the group of students were challenged with ways in which to improve their community. Team Galanz, made up of Dheeraj Daswani, John Anderson, Hunter Galbraith, and Carter Lawless had the idea of installing outdoor weight training equipment at the new Liberty Park, as a sustainable way to make the community a healthier place.  With a check totaling $23,573.96, Team Galanz, are able to make their project a reality and installation begins this week at Liberty Park.

Installation of the equipment is expected to continue throughout the week and a ribbon cutting ceremony will soon be scheduled.
