INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — The first outdoor fitness course of its kind in the Midwest is opening at Riverside Park.

The new Colts Fitness Park has more than 5,000 square feet of play space and exercise equipment along with the “PLAY 60 Challenge Course” and a 40-yard dash. Kids and adults can set a timer on the scoreboard to test their skills on the course.

Indianapolis Colts, Indianapolis Parks Foundation and Indy Parks helped make the project possible with funds coming from the 50/50 Gameday Raffle and the NFL Foundation.

Officials say the new park is part of the Colts initiative to encourage Hoosiers of all ages to be active at least 60 minutes each day through the NFL’s PLAY 60 Campaign.

Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett joined Colts players, Cheerleaders and mascot Blue for the ribbon-cutting ceremony at 10 a.m. on Tuesday at Riverside Park, 2420 East Riverside Drive.
