Knabe Dedicates New Fitness Center At Carolyn Rosas Park In Rowland Heights

Los Angeles County Supervisor Don Knabe will be on hand to dedicate the new Carolyn Rosas Fitness Center in Rowland Heights on Monday, March 10, 2008 at 4:00 pm.

The $2.3 million, 2,500 square foot addition will provide much needed space to support the park’s current programs. In addition, the new Fitness Center will allow the Department of Parks and Recreation to offer new programs at the park including: martial arts, wrestling, hula dancing, diet and exercise classes, yoga, badminton and Tai Chi. The new facility also includes additional office space and a new kitchen and snack area for the park.

In an effort to include the input of community residents in the planning of the new center, the Rowland Heights Coordinating Council held several community meetings during the process to keep the residents informed about the project. Many of the new programs to be offered at the park were requested by the Rowland Heights community.

This project is about making a reinvestment in our community, said Supervisor Knabe. The new Carolyn Rosas Fitness Center will not only increase the quality of life for the residents of Rowland Heights, but also the residents of the surrounding cities and communities that utilize this park.
