Montgomery County Recreation’s Holiday Park Senior Center Outdoor Fitness Area innovatively provides adults, ages 55 years and older, access to outside fitness equipment. The workout area is the first outdoor fitness space in the region that is expressly geared to the needs of older adults. Many seniors were apprehensive to return to an indoor setting after the COVID-19 shutdown; the outside workout area made it possible to exercise and social distance. The outdoor area is available for seniors to work out anytime, including outside of the Senior Center hours.
