OUTDOOR FITNESS CIRCUITS
In conjunction with our popular Wellness Walks initiative, we fund and install sturdy, state-of-the-art, fitness equipment so that park users have more opportunities to exercise in the open air on their own schedule throughout the day, year-round. In some cases, the equipment stations are spread out along perimeter walking paths and offer a complete work-out. People have so much fun working out that it inspires others to try it. According to a recent Rand Corporation study, people watch others using outdoor fitness equipment in parks and are inspired to work out, too. Many of our fitness circuits are strategically placed in low-income or under-served neighborhoods, where traditional private health clubs don’t exist or may otherwise be difficult to access.
