In keeping with the theme of fitness and New Year’s Resolutions, don’t forget that the City offers many more options than our Parks and Recreation Fitness Facility to keep you in shape.

In late spring of 2019, the City of Bowling Green opened the Preston Miller Outdoor Fitness area at Preston Miller Park.

This 50’ X 60’ outdoor gym features a pour and play rubber surface, a 10’ X 10’ area for stretching and aerobics, a large shade canopy, 18 pieces of exercise equipment and handicap accessible equipment. This outdoor fitness center is designed to offer a FREE total gym experience for all users.

Equipment allows for a full body workout experience including: upper body (chest press, lat pull downs, shoulder press, bicep curl, triceps press), lower body (leg press, leg extension), and cardiovascular (bikes, elliptical walker).   In addition, the gym boasts monkey bars, pull up bars, a rope climb and rings. What more could you want for an adult playground?

Once you’re out at Preston Miller, make sure to get a walk or run in on the great paved path as well.

Preston Miller Park is located at 2303 Tomblinson Way.

Additional parks with trails and running paths include Kereiakes Park, The Loops at Lovers Lane and Lampkin Park. Multiple parks are connected through the City’s extensive Greenways Program as well.

Make 2020 the year that you get out and take advantage of some of our great parks and programs!
