You don't always need a gym to work out! Have the kids join in on the workout or put the baby in the stroller. Jog or walk the trails and stop at the various exercise equipment as you breath in the fresh air. All are free and all are stroller friendly!
1525 Calkins Rd, Pittsford, NY 14534
Tinker Park is popular for its Nature Center and hikes through the woods. However, there is also a fitness trail just beyond the bridge to the pond. The trail is 1.2 miles and does a loop around the park. The workout equipment is simple (unlike the machines at some other parks) but it gets the job done! There are signs at each station describing the exercise.
Fellows Road Park
499 Fellows Rd, Fairport, NY 14450
Fellows Road Park is one of our favorites to use for the fitness trail! There is a great playground near the parking lot but if you continue on further you will see the start of the Fitness Trail. The trail loop is just under 1 mile and the equipment was in great working condition when we visited.
Greece Town Hall Campus
3 Vince Tofany Blvd, Rochester, NY 14612
A handful of exercise equipment can be found at the Greece Town Hall campus by the pond. If you follow the trail around the pound, tennis court and playground, it is just under half a mile. There is also a story trail along the path! The trail is paved making it great for strollers and bikes as well. With the nearby playground and Rec Center, this is a great place to entertain the kids while you get a couple steps in!
1350 Chiyoda Dr, Webster, NY 14580
One of the more unique fitness areas can be found behind the Webster Recreation Center. The walk to this area in itself can be a workout for some! If you follow the Chiyoda Trail from the Rec Center parking lot to this area behind the baseball fields, it's just under 1/3 mile. You can also take a shortcut through the baseball fields. Once there, you will find a parkour style fitness area! This area can be entertaining and challenging for kids and adults! There is a climbing wall, tunnels, tire course, balance beams and more. If you have any energy left, First Responders Playground is also just a short walk away!
