Healthy BR will host our second annual Family Fit Day, a free open streets initiative centered around BREC City-Brooks Park to create temporary paved parks for running, walking, bicycling, dancing, playing, and socializing on April 18th from 7:30AM-12:30PM.
During the event local organizations will offer fitness classes, speakers, healthy cooking demonstrations, water sports, bike safety classes, runs, bike rides and much more. The goal of this initiative is to provide a fun, citywide event for all ages to encourage sustained physical activity, increase community engagement, and build support for active, healthy families in Baton Rouge.
Baton Rouge joins over 90 other cities hosting Open Streets initiatives in the United States and Canada. The streets are open to all abilities to encourage everyone in Baton Rouge who wants to improve their mental, physical, and emotional health to come out, bring their families, and even pets too!
