The city announced Friday that a new state-of-the-art fitness station will be installed at Stefanik Park.
To help promote healthy lifestyles, Yonkers provides residents with the equipment they need to sweat outdoors.
“It’s our part that we’re doing to help the residents. But we’re not doing it alone, we’re doing it in concert with someone like Styles P., the artist,” Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano said. .
Surrounded by local officials in the park, Spano gave the keys to the city to local hip-hop legend Styles P.
The rapper is a third of the iconic group The Lox and was instrumental in securing outdoor gym spaces at Yonkers Parks.
“A lot of people in downtown Yonkers, especially after the pandemic, even before, can’t afford a gym membership. Just a point for the community to make a healthier community,” says the rapper.
The $ 75,000 fitness station features parallel bars, workout ladders, and jump steps.
Stefanik is now the fifth park in Yonkers equipped with training equipment.
News 12 is told that the goal is to have some sort of outdoor fitness space in all of the city’s parks to promote a general sense of well-being for residents.
âThe health of children, the health of adultsâ¦ the health of families,â says Styles P.
