Located in Allentown, Pa. Is one of the oldest and well known gymnastics
training centers in the country. Named after Mr. Park, who donated money to build a real gym. Co-owned by Bill and Donna Strauss. Know for its incredibly rigorous training and expense, that often burns out many of the high level gymnasts before getting to the Olympics. Past olympians include: Kristen Malloney, '00, and Kim Kelly, '92.
To be a Parkette, is to be a gymnast
Kristen Malloney would have done better at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, if she would not have been injured due to being overworked at Parkettes
