About FIT NOLA Parks

NORDC offers free exercise classes at six parks across the parish: Norwood Thompson, Taylor, St. Roch, Behrman, Conrad and Stallings Gentilly Parks. In addition to recreational activities several days per week for people of all ages and skill levels, booster clubs sell healthy food options at park concession stands. Police officers are asked to provide increased security at the parks during activity times to encourage greater use.

The Fit NOLA Parks initiative, a partnership between the New Orleans Recreation Development Commission (NORDC), the Louisiana Public Health Institute (LPHI) and the City of New Orleans Health Department seeks to increase use of community parks and access to healthy foods in underserved neighborhoods. Additional Fit NOLA Parks partners include the New Orleans Recreation Development Foundation, Market Umbrella, Tulane Prevention Research Center, Daughters of Charity Services of New Orleans, Norwood Thompson Booster Club, Taylor Booster Club, St. Roch Booster Club, and New Orleans Police Department. The project is funded by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana Foundation and matching funds from Chevron.
