The Park Fit series by the City of Franklin Parks Department, Get Fit Franklin, the Franklin YMCA and Anytime Fitness will include fitness events in parks throughout Franklin throughout the summer!
Stop by the Get Fit Franklin Meetup site for a complete calendar of Park Fit events.
One activity is Get Fit Franklin’s Walking Group at the Park at Harlinsdale Farm. Free of charge, this easy walk will meet at the barn to get started at 9 a.m. every Friday! The group will walk over gently rolling land on gravel and grass for about an hour and get to know fellow walkers. Off-road strollers are welcomed! This walk is being offered by Get Fit Franklin which is a program of Franklin Tomorrow and is also representing the City of Franklin as a pilot community in Governor Haslam’s Healthier Tennessee Communities Initiative. It is also a partnership with the Park Fit Fresh Air Fitness program which is sponsored by the City of Franklin Parks Department and will include events in other parks in Franklin throughout the summer! To register, visit our Meetup site.
Franklin Tomorrow’s Get Fit Franklin program was launched in 2012 thanks to the support of founding partner BlueCross BlueShield and other partners, including the City of Franklin. The program is designed to encourage residents to take the first steps to a healthier, more active community by stepping out their front door. Get Fit Franklin also provides access to group fitness opportunities through the Park Fit series in cooperation with the City of Franklin, the Franklin YMCA, and Anytime Fitness, as well as access to pre-measured and marked walking routes. It is our hope that through these efforts we will encourage citizens to increase their level of physical activity.

Quarterly events, presented by Vanderbilt Health and BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee are also held across the city during the year.
