Downtown Fit Loop Groundbreaking Ceremony

ORMOND BEACH, Fla., February 11, 2020 – On Feb. 5, the Rotary Club of Downtown Ormond Beach hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for Phase 1 of the Downtown Fit Loop project at Fortunato Park, which will include a 10-station exercise apparatus.

A more than $170,000 investment in the community’s health, the Downtown Fit Loop will provide outdoor exercise equipment in the parks at the four corners of the Granada Bridge. A two-mile pathway between the parks, using the under-bridge connections and walkways across the bridge, gives users the option to walk or run the loop without crossing the street. Upon completion of construction, the Rotary Club of Downtown Ormond Beach will gift the project to the City of Ormond Beach.

The groundbreaking ceremony featured remarks by Leisure Services Director Robert Carolin, Mayor Bill Partington, Club President Brandon Perry and AdventHealth Daytona Beach CEO Ed Noseworthy. As the presenting sponsor, AdventHealth Daytona Beach contributed $45,000 to cover half of the cost of Phase 1 and 1b. Also in attendance were City Manager Joyce Shanahan, City Commissioners Susan Persis and Dwight Selby, Past Commissioner Carl Persis, AdventHealth Daytona Beach Chief Operating Officer David Weis, gold donor Nancy Lohman, Rotarians and friends.
