May 24, 2014 (El Cajon)--The City of El Cajon Recreation was awarded a grant through the Indian Gaming Local Benefit Committee for fiscal year 2013 - 2014 to replace the outdoor adult exercise equipment located at Wells Park.  The ribbon cutting for the grand re-opening of the fitness area will be on Friday, May 30, at 10:00 a.m.

The new equipment includes an outdoor elliptical cross trainer, recumbent bike, air-walker, combo press/pull station and five additional exercising stations. The intent is to promote physical fitness for El Cajon residents.  The new equipment is intended for all exercise skill levels, so all members of the community should feel welcome to exercise with the new apparatuses.

The Indian Gaming Local Benefit Committee Grant is provided through cooperation with the County of San Diego as the grant administrative agency, along with the funding agencies of Barona Band of Mission Indians and the Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation.
