Seneca commits to completion of outdoor fitness court

(KMZA)--The Seneca City Council Wednesday evening unanimously adopted a resolution committing to the construction and launch of an outdoor fitness court by the end of 2024.

With the adoption of the resolution, the city officially accepted a $50,000 grant for the project and agreed to provide $50,000 in local matching funds. In addition, the city agrees to secure supplemental funding as needed through community sponsors to help fund the estimated $210,000 court.

The city was notified last month that it was among ten cities in the state selected to receive the grant from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas, contingent on the city securing the additional funding needed.

Mayor Joe Mitchell expressed confidence the city's residents would agree the project is beneficial to the public and donations would be made to finish funding the project.

The Council was given a partial list of donations of labor, materials and funds for the project from different entities and businesses, some located in Seneca and some in the county.

The court, a 38 by 38-foot square of outdoor exercise fixtures, was developed by the National Fitness Campaign to provide a total fitness workout accessible to all ages and skill levels.

A site east of the Aquatic Center parking lot has been proposed for the court.
