The listed parks are perfect for those who want to get in touch with nature while working out towards a healthier year. However, there are other options if you are more about working out in a group and making new friends! That’s where our Community Centers come in. There are many free classes taught at our Precinct 2 Community Centers that focus on physical fitness and well-being, such as Yoga, Line-Dancing, Chair Volleyball, Rhythm Walking, Zumba, and Karate.

Though the time, dates, and locations may vary, our Centers have a variety of classes for you to enjoy (click here to find a Precinct 2 Center near you). So, forget about gym’s initiation fees and crowds! Precinct 2 has a little bit of everything for anyone looking to get healthier this year.
