The Fitness Court will allow citizens to use the court with a mobile app that allows them to design their own workout. You'll be able to simply scan the new digital wall with your phone to access a library of free workouts designed to optimize your fitness experience.

In the press release the city says that this will be a 'new way' to get active outdoors:

 

A new way to get active outdoors is coming to Southeast Grand Rapids! Thanks in part to a $50,000 grant from the National Fitness Campaign and Priority Health, Ottawa Hills Park (2060 Oakfield Ave SE) will be home to a new Fitness Court®.

See what the Fitness Court has to offer in the video below:

The Fitness Court is an open-air wellness center that lets visitors use their own body weight to get a complete workout. Created with adults of all ages in mind, the Fitness Court is adaptable for all fitness levels. The installation is expected to begin in Summer 2022.
