Binghamton (WBNG) -- An Endicott park is getting a new addition.

George W. Johnson Memorial Park in Little Italy is getting its very own fitness course.

The new fitness course will be like the one completed in Johnson City’s Floral Ave. Park in July, with multiple different workout equipment opportunities.

Town of Union Council Members said the goal is to give everyone access to an outdoor fitness facility.

“Parks, exercise and fitness are important to use and we felt that this was a way we could encourage that and give that accessibility to our residents. So, we’re very, very excited about it,” said Council Member Sandra Dellapenna Bauman.

“This location we feel is perfect for people trying to get a quick workout,” Council Member Heather Stanley said. “We’re here in the middle of Little Italy. So, we already have a busy park. If your children are across in the swimming pool or over on the little leagues, you can come get in a workout quickly while your children are doing other activities.”

The new fitness is set to be complete in early September.
