FORT WAYNE,Ind (FortWayne’s NBC) – The Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department commemorated a main collaboration with AARP with the opening of an outside physical fitness park.

OnWednesday, Mayor Tom Henry, agents from AARP and other neighborhood members collected at the brand-new park.

Located at 233 W. Main Street, the physical fitness park includes a range of workout devices developed for any ages and capability levels.

Parks and Recreation authorities motivate people to come downtown to experiment with the devices and to take part in the circuit sessions being provided by FitLot-certified coaches. Both drop-in and pre-registered classes will be readily available, and the park will be open free of charge workout 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
