Improvements to promote fitness in Youngstown park - Tribune Chronicle


In response to a five-year community health survey that showed nearly one-third of adults in Mahoning County are considered inactive and overweight or obese, improvements are coming to an east side park to promote physical activity.

Ground will be broken Thursday afternoon on the first phase of the Lincoln Knolls Community Park, which is on Maranatha Drive near the Campbell border. Residents from the Lincoln Knolls Community Watch have been working closely with the city of Youngstown, Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation (YNDC), and other community leaders to develop a plan and generate support to upgrade the amenities and condition of Lincoln Knolls Community Park.
