The first Massachusetts Campaign Fitness Court® launched in Everett in June 2022. The Glendale Park location provided the highest accessibility points for both walkability and bike-ability for Everett’s nearly 50,000 residents. Mayor Carlo DeMaria spoke at the launch event about how proud Everett is to open their state-of-the-art Fitness Court® for their community, highlighting the importance of maintaining health and well-being post-pandemic.
Positioned near the center of town and alongside the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail, the City of Chelmsford was proud to launch their Fitness Court® in October 2022.
