County should rethink closing of park gym

Forsyth County News


A week ago Sunday, while exercising at the Central Park gym, I counted 91 boys, girls and adults playing basketball.

I also counted 21 adults using the indoor walking track and 12 more using the weight equipment.

A week from next Sunday there will be no one using the gym. Why? Because the county commissioners are going to close the gym on Sundays beginning in April.

With over a hundred teens and adults exercising and having a good time, I think the commissioners should keep the gym open. We have a great and popular county facility. Let us use it.
