Beaman says Grav has already doanted 500 dollars towards the purchase of the equipment. The parks department has also received a $15,000 grant from Toyota Indiana and another $500 from Far Best Foods.
Beaman says the projected cost for the equipment and installation is estimated around $42,000. He says they are looking to purchase 8-to-10 pieces of fitness equipment with the goal of having it installed sometime this summer.
