Lions Park Fitness

Greensboro AL / 2013 / 5th Year Project

The Lions Park Fitness project adds a layer of personal fitness opportunities to the park. While the park features many team-oriented sports (baseball, football, soccer and basketball), the walking trail is also a popular amenity for Lions Park. To enhance the opportunities for individual fitness in the park, the team is adding a series of workout machines adjacent to the walking trail. The fitness machines are designed to utilize to use the self-weight of the individual using the machine to provide resistance and offer strength training. The equipment is selected and placed to offer the park user a mix of cardiovascular, strength training and flexibility.

Each piece of equipment is placed on a concrete plinth, and located to take advantage of a specific view in the park. A series of smaller sticks, referencing back to the work done by the Lions Park Surfaces team, connect the plinths. The equipment is located on a ledge near the back of the football/soccer field which both allows easy access to the equipment from one side, and a dramatic drop on the other side. The pieces also look out over a lake located across the property line from the park.
