SAN ANTONIO (December 10, 2019) – The City of San Antonio is thrilled to open Texas’ first AARP-sponsored outdoor fitness station at Normoyle Park (700 Culberson) on Tuesday, December 10 from 1pm to 3pm. The opening ceremony will include remarks from Mayor Ron Nirenberg and San Antonio City Councilwoman Shirley Gonzales. The public is invited to a free lunch from 1pm-2pm. The ribbon-cutting will take place at 2pm.

“The new FitLot exercise station is a wonderful amenity for our community and it is accessible for people with different abilities,” noted Councilwoman Shirley Gonzales. FitLot exercise equipment can be adapted to meet a wide range of fitness levels and abilities.

“AARP Texas has long been committed to working in local communities, focusing on helping make our cities and neighborhoods more livable for older Texans—and their families too,” says Lisa Rodriguez, who oversees AARP’s work locally. “Nowhere is this truer than in San Antonio, where our tireless volunteers and staff have long advocated for the things that matter most to our city’s residents.”

In 2019, fitness parks sponsored by AARP have opened in St. Petersburg, FL; Manchester, NH; Newport, RI; Bangor, ME; Buffalo, NY; Cincinnati, OH; Rapid City, SD; Springfield, IL; Wilmington, DE; Jackson, MS; Hagerstown, MD; New Orleans, LA; Mobile, AL; and Phoenix, AZ.
