Environmental change coming to the Borough of Hamburg

We are pleased to announce, the Borough of Hamburg  will be our next location for a FitTrail system. The impact opportunity for this system is huge in the location chosen by the borough’s council.

The Hamburg Park and Recreation Fields space is a bustling location within the borough. The park features a baseball field, huge playground, cover pavilion with restrooms, soccer field and a paved walking path encompassing the entire park. The park has been nestled into the rolling hills so often found up here in Sussex County. The walking path is over a half mile loop and just perfect for a FitTrail system.

The council has tapped the Hamburg DPW for the installation. This is slotted to begin once the fields are manicured and ready for Spring sports. The 10 station Fit-Trail is an outdoor exercise system installed along a walking or jogging trail. It contains instruction signs and exercise equipment designed for the novice or conditioned athlete. This offers opportunity for all to find wellness.
