Adult exercise equipment installed at University Playground
Neighbors are invited to celebrate new exercise equipment at University Playground Saturday, Nov. 16 at 1:30 p.m. University Playground is located at 9th Ave. NE and NE 50th. The celebration will take place south of the tennis courts.

University Playground now offers five exercise stations. The new equipment provides adults options for personal fitness and energizes a neglected corner of the park. The Friends of University Playground and the Roosevelt Neighbors' Alliance are hosting the event.  The YMCA will demonstrate how to use the new exercise stations and light snacks will be provided.

The community-initiated project, installed by the Seattle Conservation Corps, was funded by a successful neighborhood fundraising campaign and a Seattle Department of Neighborhood’s Neighborhood Matching Fund.
