Official Grand Opening Of Outdoor Fitness Court- Newest Addition To Pacific Park – Is This Friday

The official grand opening of the newest quality of life addition at Pacific Park, a sleek, modern outdoor Fitness Court® with a supporting mobile app, will be held at 10:30 a.m. Friday, March 25, 2022, in the park.

The capital project is a featured part of an initiative launched by National Fitness Campaign (NFC), a nationwide consulting organization that partners with cities and schools to plan, build and fund healthy infrastructure.

In 2021, the City of Sulphur Springs was one of the recipients from around the country awarded a $25,000 grant from NFC to help support the program. In addition to grant funding, a city match and local partnerships from Saputo and CHRISTUS Mother Francis Hospital contributed to make the project possible in Sulphur Springs.

The new Fitness Court® at Pacific Park is an open-air wellness center that allows users to leverage their own body weight to get a complete workout. Created with adults of all ages in mind, the Fitness Court is adaptable for all fitness levels.

The Fitness Court is one of several improvements and upgrades planned at Pacific Park. The first was construction of a new HW Grays Community Building, with new sidewalk and parking around it. New playground equipment, improved drainage and a new basketball pavilion are among the improvements identified by the community and being funded in by grant funding and a voter-approved bond.

Residents are invited to attend an Opening Day Launch Event on March 25 at 10:30 a.m. to try the Fitness Court® and learn about upcoming community wellness events and programming. For more information, visit or contact Sulphur Springs Assistant City Manager/Community Development Director Tory Niewiadomski at 903-885-7541.
