FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne's NBC) - The Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department celebrated an official partnership with AARP with the opening of an outdoor fitness park.
On Wednesday, Mayor Tom Henry, representatives from AARP and other community members gathered at the new park.
Located at 233 W. Main Street, the fitness park features a variety of exercise equipment designed for all ages and ability levels.
Parks and Recreation officials encourage citizens to come downtown to try out the equipment and to participate in the circuit sessions being offered by FitLot-certified coaches. Both drop-in and pre-registered classes will be available, and the park will be open for free exercise throughout the day.
“We are so appreciative of AARP selecting Fort Wayne, and specifically the Community Center, to represent their goal of encouraging healthy and effective exercise. While this park will certainly be an asset for our community’s older citizens, we think everyone can benefit from having this equipment in a readily accessible area in downtown Fort Wayne. We hope everyone has a chance to check out the park and even take an exercise class or two here.”Parks and Recreation Director Steve McDaniel
