All activities in this six–week fitness program take place twice a week at each location through November 1, 2013.  Participants are encouraged to maintain regular attendance to maximize health benefits.

CityParks Seniors Fitness has served over 5,000 participants since it began in 2006 and aims to keep neighborhood parks a great place for community activity.  The program encourages New Yorkers to maximize the health benefits of staying active at every age.
