West Perrine Park

In July 2012, we opened our first Fitness Zone® installation in Miami-Dade County at West Perrine Park with funding provided by MetLife Foundation, Health Foundation of South Florida, and The Miami Foundation.

Obesity and related health problems are a leading preventable cause of death in America. But for many people, gym membership fees are a barrier to getting in better physical shape. The Trust for Public Land has been working to bring Fitness Zone® programs to parks across the nation, creating a fun, accessible, and social environment where people can enjoy getting fit. The equipment is similar to machines in a private gym but is more durable to resist weather and vandalism.
