“We are in need of $50,000.”

That’s what West Union Parks and Recreation Director Kathy Guyer said is required in order to purchase and install a set of adult exercise equipment at Rotary Park.

“Parks and Recreation conducted a survey in 2017 and the top needs for Rotary Park were identified as putting something in that was ADA accessible, preschool playground equipment, and adult fitness equipment.  With all the playground equipment in our community, we chose to go with the adult fitness equipment that is ADA accessible,” Guyer explained.
