POSTPONED: Official Unveiling Of New Attraction In Pacific Park Is Postponed

The unveiling of the newest quality of life addition at Pacific Park, a sleek, modern outdoor Fitness Court® with a supporting mobile app, has been postponed.

The City of Sulphur Springs had planned to hold the opening on Friday, March 11, but due to predictions of potential snow and other wintery weather city officials made the decision to postpone the unveiling. City officials are potentially looking at Friday morning, March 25, as the date to reset the planned unveiling, but had yet to confirm with all partners involved, according to Sulphur Springs Assistant City Manager/Community Development Director Tory Niewiadomski.

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 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 part by grant funding and a bond taken out by the city, which will be paid back using EDC funding.
