Idea #6 - Free Outdoor Fitness Programs

Free summer fitness programs in New Westminster Parks.

"People want to get outside in the summer. I would love to see our community offer free outdoor fitness programs in some of our most popular parks during the warmer months. This will help promote an active, healthy community and give residents another great reason to enjoy their parks."  Jonathan X. Cote

When the weather gets nice, why not turn New Westminster's beautiful parks into outdoor gyms? Many communities across North America offer free summer fitness classes with certified instructors in their parks. These programs have been very successful in promoting physical activity and giving people the opportunity to enjoy healthy exercise in an outdoor setting. For the past few years, the city has seen a popular yoga series in Pier Park. The City of New Westminster could look at expanding this type of programming to other parks in the city to proving easily accessible ways for community members to stay fit.
