This afternoon I stopped by Kennedy Park in Coconut Grove to check out the new fitness area which was completed in January. Take a look at the pictures below; I think you’ll agree that the $24,500 investment has paid itself off already. The fitness area was packed with people of all ages. Again congratulations to Commissioner Mark Sarnoff, for allocating quality-of-life funds for this initiative. The fitness area is undeniably making our community healthier.

    I ride my bike and use this fitness area a few times a week. There are always people using it from all age groups.
    In this new age of healthcare, if we are to promote a healthy lifestyle, installing these in more local parks, should be a top priority. A free gym that neighbors can walk to, promotes a healthy work out and a great spot to meet some of your neighbors.
    If the city is going to fund a dog park, maybe it should be mandatory to simultaneously install a fitness park as well.

    PS…Dogs should be leashed in the park, even when you are walking your dog, to and from, the dog park.
