Trail Fitness is on its way to Franklin Borough

Franklin Borough has seen great leaps forward within the past year from it’s re-opening the pond for swimming, a highly requested ‘Wish’ from the Forward Franklin Alliance ‘One Wish’ survey. Bringing swimming back to the pond has once again made the area a focal point of activity in the town. With this revitalized focus we are excited to bring the culture of wellness to the pond also.

In a couple short weeks Franklin Borough will have a 10 station Fit-Trail system for all who make their way to the pond. This system is an outdoor exercise system, which contains instructional signs and exercise equipment designed for all levels of wellness seekers. We have partnered with Franklin Borough’s DPW to assist with the installation of the 10 station system. We are excited for this addition to the pond and the increased availability for all to attain their wellness goals.
