HOBBS FARM FIT COURT OPENS FOR PUBLIC USE
After a few final preparations this week, the new Hobbs Farm Park Fit Court is expected to open for public use during the week of September 23.
A grant from the Atlanta-based Mary Alice and Bennett Brown Foundation helped build the Hobbs Farm Fit Court, an outdoor exercise area similar to one located in Atlanta’s Piedmont Park. The facility features five equipment pieces that offer 120 exercise combinations and fitness routines for beginners and advanced users. The court is ADA compliant and located close to a water fountain and restrooms.
The need for outdoor space catering to teenagers and the active adult population was mentioned during community surveys and town hall meetings when the city was updating its Comprehensive Plan in 2018.
The fit court is also expected to attract groups affiliated with Parks and Recreation’s Senior Activities Center and Tanner Health System’s healthy living classes, that meet on and around the GreenBelt.
Hobbs Farm Park is a trailhead for the Carrollton GreenBelt a few blocks from Adamson Square and has become a go-to spot for exercise and healthy activity. The fit court joins the park’s long list of amenities, which includes a one-mile GreenBelt loop, one of Georgia’s highest-rated disc golf courses, a public kayak launch pad, and a gazebo in a middle of the Little Tallapoosa River.
