Enjoy a Free Workout or Yappy Hour at Washington Park

Free Wi-Fi, a fully revamped bandstand, and an over-the-top playground (complete with a canal boat in a real water channel) are a few of the elements that make recently made-over Washington Park such a popular spot. When renovations wrapped up in 2012, the park was about two acres bigger with sprawling lawns, an underground parking garage, and lots of refreshed features.

Come to the park this spring to enjoy some fresh air, exercise, and fun. Join in a free fitness class on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Saturdays. You don't have to pay anything or register in advance, just show up and get sweating. Bring your pup along to Yappy Hour on Thursdays evenings at The Porch, an outdoor venue serving up beer, liquor, wine, and some snacks. It's open Thursday through Saturday.
