Metropolis of Kissimmee receives $76,000 in grants to put in new health path



The Kissimmee Parks & Recreation Department recently opened the Mill Slough Park Fitness Trail at 2138 Agate Street to provide residents and visitors with a well-shaded area to continue their outdoor exercise routines.

The Mill Slough Fitness Trail, which was built at $ 96,197, was a combination of city, state, and federal funding. The Florida Recreation Development Assistance Program (FRDAP) awarded a grant of $ 50,000 while the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) awarded $ 26,000. The City of Kissimmee invested $ 20,197 in this project.

“This new addition to the park offers users a full-body outdoor fitness trail that allows them to stay in shape, develop and strengthen muscles. It can also be used to create resistance or flexibility. Projects like this enable the city to continue to offer rooms for residents and visitors in which they can enjoy and look after their wellbeing, ”said Mayor Olga González.
