Councilmember O’Farrell, Community Leaders Break Ground on New Fitness Equipment at Echo Park Lake
ECHO PARK — Los Angeles City Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell was joined on Tuesday by local seniors, the Department of Recreation and Parks and members of the Echo Park Advisory Board to break ground on new fitness equipment at Echo Park Lake.
Located at the northwest corner of the park, the fitness equipment will take approximately three months to install and was designed for use by local seniors.
“Parks play a critical role in keeping all Angelenos fit and healthy” said Los Angeles City Councilmember Mitch O’Farrell. “I’m proud to have worked with the local community to secure funding for Echo Park Lake’s latest amenity, keeping our seniors front and center, in a safe, active environment.”
The fitness equipment results from extensive dialogue between Echo Park seniors and the Department of Recreation and Parks regarding age appropriate fitness equipment
