Exercise equipment designed for children is being installed along the Barren Fork Greenway.Five pieces are being placed by McMinnville employees and made possible by a grant obtained by Friends of the Greenway from the Steven and Kate Smith Community Trust. “I wanted to put four of the five pieces along the greenway stretch starting at Riverfront Park,” said Friends of the Greenway president Trevor Galligan. “But due to the difficulty of getting a truck to haul cement down the greenway, we ended up just doing three small pieces along that stretch, and then they continue at Pepper Branch Park along the walking path.”
