From 19 News Cleveland:

MetroHealth Medical Center recently repaired playgrounds and updated fitness zones on the city’s East side, in the Buckeye neighborhood.

The work was made possible by a grant from Fifth Third Bank.

The fitness zones are located at the East End Neighborhood House, Fairhill Partners and Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority’s Woodhill Community Center.

All fitness zones are also adjacent to kids’ play areas.

Devin Bates with the East End Neighborhood House said children and their teachers used to have to walk three to four miles to a playground.

“I believe that kids just need to play and being that this takes them back to just being kids’, man I’m ecstatic,” said Bates.
