Township Manager Dean Kazinci discusses features of the new outdoor fitness facility at Votee Park in Teaneck

TEANECK — A 13-station exercise equipment center has opened on the northeast side of Votee Park, and although it’s been in the works for a long time, the timing couldn’t be better.

The 2,100-square-foot rubber-padded area was proposed two years ago to replace exercise facilities on the west side of the park that had become outdated, according to Township Manager Dean Kazinci.

“There was a tremendous need to provide this outdoor service to our residents,” Kazinci said.  “With gyms not open, this provides a little relief for them.”

Indoor gyms in New Jersey remain under strict restrictions because of the coronavirus pandemic, with only one-on-one sessions permitted.
