Grand Rapids Parks & Rec offer lots of fun (and FREE!) exercise opportunities this summer. The iconic Blue Bridge over the Grand River in downtown Grand Rapids is the site for mid-week early-evening exercise options, through the end of August.
“Add some relaxation to your day at this free outdoor community yoga session. Begin with gentle stretching and move to flowing through and holding poses. Class will come to a restful end.” No registration required, simply drop in. Check their Facebook for important instructions.
