The endeavor was funded through a generous personal donation by Barry and Wendy Rowland, as part of a $105,000 challenge grant they offered for a new playground. Envisioned is a space that encourages physical and imaginative activities adding to the already exceptional woods trails and walking track surrounding the school. Additional donations were provided by Londonderry Hardware contributing 2.5 tons of concrete and by Brown Enterprises lending out heavy equipment.
All students, families and community members are welcome to use the equipment on school grounds and parents may use it during the school day. In total, the five stations offer 120 different exercises. The goal is for the track and fitness equipment to provide many years of health to all members of the Mountain Towns community.
