Exercisers at Santa Maria's Preisker Park will see new work out equipment soon.

The park already has great opportunities to play and be active.

Now the city plans to install an outdoor center of nine exercise structures and machines.

It's all a part of the city's active living program, especially for the elderly.

The new equipment will develop muscle and core strength, balance and flexibility.

The center will be ready to use by April 12th, right before the April Showers Community Walk at the park.
