The Indianapolis Colts, Indianapolis Parks Foundation and Indy Parks constructed a fitness park in Riverside Park on the city’s northwest side. The new fitness park includes a PLAY 60 Challenge Course, 40-yard dash and exercise equipment. With more than 5,000 square feet of play space, the project provides a safe and fun place for families and children to exercise and spend time outdoors together.
The project was funded by the Indianapolis Colts Foundation through the team’s 50/50 gameday raffle, and the NFL Foundation to support the health and wellness of the communities served by Riverside Park and the surrounding areas. This is the first fitness park of its kind to be built in the Midwest and is part of the Colts ongoing commitment to encourage Hoosiers of all ages to be active at least 60 minutes each day through the NFL’s PLAY 60 Campaign.
The Colts Fitness Park is located to the east of the Riverside Family Center within Riverside Park. It opened in September of 2016 and will serve more than 30,000 individuals annually.
