Fitness in the Park
August 13, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 10:45 am
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Sunday, repeating until August 28, 2017
Join Aquidneck Land Trust (“ALT”) and the Newport County YMCA for free fitness classes in scenic Miantonomi Park every Sunday in August! This historic, 30-acre park features large, undisturbed woodlands in the densely developed North End of Newport. Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to socialize with friends and neighbors, and to engage in some free physical activity in the fresh air. The 45-minute classes will be led by a certified fitness professional from the Newport County YMCA. All ages and abilities are welcome!
Fitness in the Park is part of the Miantonomi Exploration Days, brought to you by the Newport Open Space Partnership. After the class, climb the spiral staircase of Miantonomi Memorial Tower and explore the park’s network of beautiful trails – all conserved permanently by ALT.
Fitness in the Park is made possible by a grant from the Frederick Henry Prince Memorial Fund at Newport Hospital. Join us for a workout that’s “Powered by Prince!”
Program is free; no reservation required and will be held weather permitting. Classes held on sunny Sundays in August. Any cancellation notices will be posted on the ALT and Newport County YMCA Facebook pages.
