The Friends of Wilmington Parks, supported by funding from Highmark Delaware and Incyte, has expanded the exercise options in Wilmington’s Brandywine Park. The Friends have created a fitness trail by adding four stationary exercise stations along the park’s riverfront jogging trail. The stations allow users to add a strength and flexibility workout to their daily walk or run.
“I thank Friends of Wilmington Parks and their community partners for this latest initiative that adds important health-related amenities to an already fantastic open space in the heart of Wilmington,” said Wilmington Mayor Mike Purzycki.
The Friends of Wilmington Parks is a non-profit organization founded in 1991, dedicated to the preservation and beautification of Wilmington’s green spaces. They work with Delaware State Parks to support Brandywine Park, Alapocas Run State Park, Rockford Park, Kentmere Parkway, and the H. Fletcher Brown Park.
