Councilman LaBonge helped the Department of Recreation and Parks officially open a new workout area at North Hollywood Park this week. This new exercise equipment replaces the badly worn-out, old, wooden exercise apparatus with new modern fitness equipment. The old fitness area was 28'x28' and had about 6 pieces of equipment. The new fitness area was expanded to 48'x48' and had 15 pieces of equipment installed. Crews also laid-down a new Decomposed Granite surfacing for the area, concrete curbing and a Decomposed Granite path that connects the fitness area to the existing walking path. The open-air workout air was paid for with $40-thousand dollars in Quimby funds from developers, which are earmarked for recreational amenities in the community surrounding the project.
The workout area is located just south of Magnolia Boulevard, west of Tujunga Avenue.
