The Park also features nine baseball fields, six softball fields and two multi-use soccer fields. "We will begin taking memberships on Tuesday," Phillips said.
For ages 55 and older the membership cost is $10; for ages 17 and under, the membership cost is also $10; for ages 18 to 54, there is a $25 per month charge and a family of five or more can get a special monthly rate of $42.
"We are really excited to get this opened to the public," Phillips said. "There has been a lot of excitement surrounding our health and fitness programs."
