Parks board closing former Curves facility

By Lisa King

Nine months after opening on New Year's Day, the Family Activities Center’s Women's Gym, operated as a separate facility by Shelby County Parks, will close its doors on Aug. 31 because of lack of revenue, parks officials said.

"We tried it, but just couldn't make it cost effective," Shelby County Parks and Recreation Board Chair Hubie Pollett said. "It was a good thing, but we just couldn't afford it; we would have had to triple the fees [for existing members] to keep it open."
