New Fitness Trail Installed

Fairhope, Alabama


City crews have completed installation of a new 10-station fitness trail within the existing walking trail at Stimpson Field. It was funded by a grant ($15K according to Recreation Director Sherry Sulllivan) from the Rotary Club of Fairhope and the Fairhope Sunset Rotary Club.

A description of the trail equipment can be found on the Fit-Trail website (click).
