Fall Fitness for Seniors in New York City Parks


NEW YORK—Free tennis lessons, yoga instruction, and fitness walking sessions will be available in 13 city parks for New Yorkers aged 60-plus, starting Sept. 24. The City Parks Foundation program runs through Nov. 2 and all instruction and equipment is provided free of charge. The sessions are an hour long and each runs twice a week.
“This program has a great social aspect to it and is an easy way for participants to meet one another in a low key, supportive, and fun environment,” Mike Silverman, director of sports programming for City Parks Foundation, wrote in an email.
MrKen has participated in the group tennis lessons at two locations over a three year period, and strongly recommends the program. It's a great way to socialize, play a fun game and get beneficial exercise. Here is the schedule:
