Brooklyn’s Prosect Park Adds GameTime Fitness Products

Prospecting for Better Health and Wellness

GameTime is excited to announce the inclusion of GTfit outdoor fitness products in the new adult fitness area at Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. Located on the east side of the Parade Ground by the Crooke Avenue entrance, the fitness area contains 12 types of fitness equipment, including ADA-accessible products for users of all abilities. The Prospect Park Alliance, a nonprofit organization formed to sustain the park, planted additional trees near the fitness area to provide natural shade.

New York City Council Member Mathieu Eugene was at the ribbon cutting of the new fitness space. “I want to commend the Prospect Park Alliance for the tremendous work they do to keep the Parade Ground a vibrant recreational area,” said Council Member Eugene. “This section of Prospect Park is so important for this neighborhood because it allows our residents to engage in outdoor activities that are beneficial to the health and wellbeing of the community. I am honored to allocate funding for the new adult fitness area as well as infrastructure improvements that will increase the sustainability of the Parade Ground. It is my hope that by working together we will continue to create a welcoming environment for all New Yorkers to enjoy.”
