The Rogers Park pond area in Danbury was recently cleaned and had other improvements to the area made. Councilman Duane Perkins says while there are plenty of playgrounds and playscapes where children can play, there aren't a lot of other outdoor recreation opportunities in the City. An outdoor fitness area was just added to Roger Park. Perkins noted that the area will help people who can't physically play softball, tennis or other outdoor games, but can stretch, do sit-ups and the like. Last year's $300,000 renovation included a new walking path and a fountain for the pond. Trees in the area were trimmed, bridges refinished and new park furniture installed.
