The Fitness Park located by the Silber Way footbridge has pull-up bars, benches, and other basic steel structures for the playground warrior in you. And since it was designed as a free fitness space, there are plenty of suggested workouts sprinkled on signs throughout (including a few for people in wheelchairs). It’s a great place for a stretch break, or to knock out a body-weight WOD.
This former South End landfill has been transformed into a 350-acre park with miles of walking trails, a canoe landing, nature study paths, and an outdoor amphitheater. With the Charles on one side and Sawmill Brook on the other, much of the park offers up a fantastic view of the water. You might forget that you’re supposed to be exercising.
This Cambridge-side park has a swimming pool as well as athletic fields, playground space, and walking trails, making it excellent for frisbee, dog wrestling, partner acro, and all the other ways you trick yourself into doing cardio. The 15-acre space is also home to the oldest building on the Charles, a granite powder magazine built in 1818.
