Three days a week, a small group of mothers meet at DeKoevend Park in Littleton to work up a sweat and play with their kids.
"I can come and talk to other moms, and it's [the class] offered a lot so that I can get out and my kids could play," said Amy Wagner, a mom who lives nearby and said the Stroller Strides class has been an outlet for local stay-at-home moms.
But they recently learned their Stroller Strides class could soon be shut down because of new fees charged by the South Suburban Parks and Recreation District.
"We are willing to pay permit fees, and we already do in Denver and Broomfield, but nothing like this." said Jillian Jones, the Fit4Mom Stroller Strides Front Range General Manager. "They told us to raise our rates for our clients."
"It would be heartbreaking," said Wagner. "If they would not allow us to work out here anymore because it's hard enough to get out of the house with kids -- one kid two, to have to drive even further, moms aren't going to be able to do that."
A South Suburban Parks spokeswoman said they did not have anyone available to comment Friday, but said they are still negotiating with Stroller Strides and are hoping for a positive outcome on both sides.
