KRPA Agency Experience with NFC
Wyandotte County Park and Recreation Department joined the NFC Campaign back in 2018. They installed their first fitness court in December 2019.
"NFC was great to work with. They were flexible and provided support such as crowd funding, marketing, and planning. They communicated with us frequently to make sure we had what we need and to ensure the project was on track. The fitness court provides an opportunity for FREE fitness, and the neighborhood that this court was installed in has shown a great appreciation for it. Since installing the fitness court at St. Margaret’s Park, we have received a number of inquiries from community members wanting one in their neighborhood park. With our intentions of offering boot camp sessions, we saw the potential in positive impacts on our community as far as offering physical fitness/health opportunities that some of these communities don’t easily have access to. We had original plans to run FREE boot camps for our community, but due to COVID we did have to cancel those. However, we had a strong interest in those classes. We have seen the community using the court once we opened playgrounds back up due to being closed during PHASE 1 of COVID. Our local KCKPAL boxing program has utilized the fitness court to conduct some same, COVID friendly training." - Angel Obert, Assistant Director, WYCO/KCK UG Parks and Recreation
