A Day in the Park with The Korte Company

The Korte Company, along with representatives from the City of Highland, HSHS and Dennis Rinderer, celebrated the completion of the Fitness & Exercise station located at the Northeast corner of Dennis Rinderer Park in Highland, Illinois.

The fitness equipment was gifted to the city through HSHS St. Joseph’s Hospital in Highland and was installed by The Korte Company’s Diversified Operations Group. Bruce Moore of Bruce Concrete out of Granite City, Illinois also contributed to the project though the donation of concrete equipment and personnel.

Six unique fitness features including a double leg press, sit up bench, body-pull, arm-walk, push-off and a plyometric jump set provide park visitors with a wide assortment of fitness activities. The equipment is designed for people of all fitness levels by Outdoor Fitness, Inc., a Colorado-based company which specializes in outdoor fitness equipment.

Dennis Rinderer Park is the city of Highland’s newest park, and was named for Dennis Rinderer who was instrumental in its conception and development. Dennis, along with Highland’s Mayor, Joe Michaelis and City Manager Mark Latham worked to bring the concept into a reality.
