“Safe Fun-Fit at the Bayfront” Offers New Children’s Area on June 12th
JUNE 12, 2020
Many people enjoy biking, running, jogging, and walking along the shoreline. However due to COVID-19, social distancing on the narrow pathway has been challenging. To increase physical activity and promote a healthier Corpus Christi, City Manager Peter Zanoni has created a new health and wellness initiative to take place along the Corpus Christi Bayfront on Ocean Drive, between Cole Park and the Art Center of Corpus Christi. On Saturdays, Shoreline Boulevard is temporarily closed to north bound traffic from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. creating a Fitness Lane spanning 1.25 miles for residents to bike, run, jog, and walk along the Bayfront.
Classes are offered through a partnership with VFit Productions, a local company devoted to promoting a healthy lifestyle, and the City's Parks & Recreation Department. The City is also proud to announce our community partnership with H-E-B which will provide fruit and water. Participants are encouraged to bring their own face coverings, sun block, yoga mat and water, as appropriate, for their workout. Exercise and wellness events will be held on Saturdays from June 6 – August 29, 2020, at The Water’s Edge (402 S. Shoreline Blvd.). Pre-registration is required. This free program is for all skill levels, ages 8 and older. Youth ages 8 - 15 must be accompanied by an adult.
