A ribbon-cutting is planned for this evening for the newest upgrade at Springfield’s Centennial Park.
A $400,000 state grant paid for the addition of walking trails, a playground, a picnic shelter, and an “adult fitness station.”
That station… with four separate sections for sit-ups or other types of calisthenics… is believed to be the first of its kind in a Springfield park.
The new area is located immediately adjacent to the Centennial Park Place subdivision and will give residents there easy access to the park and the new features.
The ribbon-cutting is set for 5:30 this evening.
