A new way to get out and get active is headed to Toronto! The city just officially announced a brand new pilot program called ParkFitTO. This initiative is dedicated to offering residents outdoor fitness options as the city remains under a number of provincial COVID-19 restrictions.
ParkFitTO will offer weekly and drop-in outdoor fitness and walking programs at free or affordable costs. Many of the city’s recreation centres will be relocating equipment outdoors to aid in the project. Outdoor spaces near community centres and in parks will be where ParkFitTO will primarily take place.
